Come and go cough?

My 8 month old has had a cough off and on since Christmas. It started out dry, got really phlegmy, then tapered off and went away. Within a couple weeks, he was coughing a little again. Now he's got a very runny nose, has a hard time breathing while nursing, and is a little wheezy. He's still his normal, happy, self. We don't have any insurance, and next to no money, and I'd rather avoid a doctor's visit if possible.
What do you experienced moms think?

  • Could be allergies. Could be just a cold. It is that season. Load him up with Vicks vapor rub (on bottom of feet), and make a tent around his crib with a steamer. Should help out!
