Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic. Cough in kids is very common symptom It could be a manifestation of viral upper respiratory infection or a wheeze. Any cough medication will not immediately give absolute relief. If the kid is not having respiratory distress or fast breathing or noisy breathing, I don't think you should worry. Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
