My Dd had a persistent cough at night which turned out to be suspected asthma. She is also 4. We were prescribed a steroid inhaler from the gp and it has worked like magic for her. Her cough only reappears now when she has a cold.

In the meantime, I found that putting Vicks on the soles of her feet and on her chest helped a little. But the only thing that really clears it for us are the inhalers. Hope it gets sorted, I know how worrying it can be.

Also keep him propped up a bit more in bed I find lying flat makes it worse
