I'm never 100% sure the route I should be taking or if I'm being dramatic.

DS has had a cough since December. Sometimes it's really mild and sometimes it's awful.

Yesterday afternoon his coughing became really loud and really chesty.
Last night was complete broken sleep, he'd just scream for 15 minutes at a time and he'd be coughing.
Woke up about 40 minutes ago and he's badly coughing (still sounds like there's something stuck in his throat), wheezing slightly, he's very tired, breathing faster and I think he's sucking in under his ribs slightly. He's asking for toys now and wants to play and isn't drowsy.

What's the best thing to do here?

Ah I’m glad he’s ok!
@rememberallball it’s a fair comment that different areas do things differently, my asthmatic kids have been admitted directly to the children’s ward a few times, the most memorable the first time my DD had an attack where the GP drove us himself because the ambulance service were so backed up.
