  • If he has a really barky cough he could have coup. If that is the case then he needs to have cold air not warm air. I know that with my kids I either take them out side or sit them neat an open window.

    Other then what you are doing I can not think of anything else.

    Good Luck

  • maybe give him a luke warm bath, just sponge it over head slowly, that usualy comforts body aches. vapor rub if congested. steam too. ummm that's all I can think of right now. hope he feels better.
