child with dry coughing at night onlyHi there. My 3 year old son had a cold approximately 10 or 11 days ago. His cold was a runny nose, but not much else, for about two days. Then a little bit of a cough came, which only happens at night. The cough is getting more persistant, and still remains dry and unproductive. There was, and has not, been a fever with it. Also, it may or may not be unrelated, just tonight, a couple of times before going to bed, my son had diarrhea. He never gets diarrhea, so this grabs at my attention. It is yellowish-colored diarrhea.
Thank you for any help that you can offer.
