Welcome to the healthcaremagic
Cold cough is viral origin which is self limiting and doesn't require treatment. He has breath holding spasm.Whenever he does it break that spell by sprinkling water on her face.Then don't encourage this behavior by showing increased concern and fulfilling all her wishes.Sometimes they are associated with iron deficiency.So give iron syrup.Do EEG and ECG to rule out rarest possibility of seizure and heart problem
