  • I would honestly take him bback to the Dr. a cough that hasnt gone aay after antibiotics and has lasted as long as his has I would go back. Is he around other kids at all? I would check for RSV if he has. Lucien had that and there's nothing any antibiotic can do, we were in the hospital 4 days with him until his blood oxygen went up, and the test they have to do for it involves rinsing the nasal cavity and ucien didnt even test positive for it and they kept him 4 days "just in case"
    Hope this helps!
