My 3 year old got a cough that persisted for months. We treated with cough syrups, then antibiotics and finally intravenous injections and that's when it cleared. But it was a very traumatic experience. As a preventive measure, I ensure he takes mixed fruit juice every day especially oranges and tangerine, keep him very clean and keep him warm at night.
