I know viral coughs can go on and on but this seems never ending! He's 7 months.

Just that really.

Has your GP tried him on an inhaler and listened to his chest recently in case he's wheezy? Have you tried all the - raising cot head, humidifiers, etc? Poor babe, and the winter is really getting under way now!

Listened to chest, nothing apparently. No inhaler. Going to mention it on Wednesday as he has an appointment anyway.

Tried all the usual cold helps, plus a massive clean of the room/ house.

Has he been tested for whooping cough? It can go on for months and they don't always 'whoop'.

The GP reckons it's to do with secretions and his allergies, prescribed daily piriton, see how it goes I guess.
