hello!
well. first we have to find out, why he is coughing?for which you will need to do a chest xray , you may also have to do sputum for culture?
if the cough was sudden in onset, then there maybe a foreign body and this must be ruled out
please meet a good pediatrician as soon as you can!
thanks
