kids Cold, cough, fever which is not going away

My 3 yr old son developed first cough, then cold and then fever four days back. here are the symptoms:
1. COUGH: Dry hacking chesty cough, kind of spasmodic, urge to hawk phelgum but i guess because of age not able to do so. Cough more prominent in night -specially when he gets up. (no vomit till now). I have tried Belladona, Bryonia, Ipecac, Drosera, BCNo6, and a homeo-formula called KOFFMED, but none seem to help.
2. COLD: Stuffy blocked nose in the night (breathing from mouth or heavy rapid breathing noise through blocked nose. Moderate discharge in the day. Discharge white. No sneezing. Have tried aconite (initially) and then kali bich, nux vomica and epiphegus.
3. Fever has been now for three continuous days - doesn't go down fully. Usually back and tmmy hot - while limbs and forehead not really hot.
Using paracetamol syrup to control the fever.
Also given gelsemium in night.
Also given influensium 1m.
4. constitutionally - likes to be in the room, lying down. Drinks water frequently in the night. Is not eating much (expected :-)
A slim playful boy, who gets angry easily. Likes sweet predominantly - but is not eating sweet since fever.
5. WEATHER: We are based in bangalore india - so night are cool windy, while days fairly warm
Kindly suggest some remedies. This is fourth time he is getting this kind of cold+cough+fever in the last two years - last time being about 6 months before.
thanks in advance.

Dear Faisal
Thanks for your response. I did mention in my initiail pos that i have tried Bell 30.
I did for the first day of symptoms - but since i did not find any improvment i tried something else.
Any other suggestions. Will Kali Mur help?

Children infrequently need Tuberculinum 200 daily one dose for a few days in such cases.

Tuberculinum is a good remedy after resolving the acute, I feel . For acute Hepar sulph. is a good possibility.

when last stool passed?
yesterday - it was noraml in consistency & effort
characteristics? how has urination changed since cough started?
not changed - at best slightly reduced
increased possibly becasue he is breathing out of mouth?
list all symptoms as currenty exist also....
symptoms remain the same - child is kind of active in the day but nose is blocked through out the day
even becomes little cranky

what was occuring or changing just prior to initial cough occurring?weather change? ....etc
we had gone for four days to sea beach and then returned on tue and he got this on thursday.
