welcome to Health Care Magic forum,
if your doctor told about antibiotic, he might require but just make sure he is giving it confirming infection in the child. needs to do a chest x ray. if there is infection, cough wont subside without antibiotics.

Welcome to Healthcare magic
Cough is a symptom of airways or lung pathology mostly infection.even if treated symptomatically by anti histaminics like lorrinase it may persist if the underlying infection is untreated.Viral infections do not require antibiotics and the cough is usually short lasting .But this can only be diagnosed by your doctor after complete examination. So its best to follow his advice.
