Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

You need to know what kind of cough your child has first. 

Check to make sure your vents are clean and that there is no mold in your home. Check for dampness and dust. These are all factors that can cause coughing and they need to be eliminated. 

I would also have your child be seen by a doctor to find the cause of this coughing. He may have some kind of infection or allergy that is causing this. 

Call your doctor to see what kind of over-the-counter medication he/she can take. He/she may need a suppressant, a decongestant, or an expectorant.
