  • my son, 4, had a dry cough for over a month. no other real symptoms. i took him because i couldn't take the coughing all night anymore. the pedictrician put him on an antibiotic only because it was going on for so long. it did help. within a day or two he coughed much less. so yes, take him.

  • it could be nothing or it could be something serious I would call the doctor and see what they suggest
