Please get him to see a paediatrician.He needs a chest xray and a sputum test is heasnt got them yet.He also needs antibiotics so i hope he already has them.Dont let him lie flat in bed which will aggravate the cough more,give him a head high position.He should also get some nebulisation to clear his chest.
