DS is 18mo and has been woken up last three nights by a horrible dry cough that seems to come in waves. Really bright in himself, no temp, just a snotty nose and this cough. I have given him calpol but any other suggestions welcome.

Don't have a humidifier but will try and raise cot at one end thank you.

Would Vicks on Muslin do as I don't want to undress him if possible?
