15 month old with severe coughMy little boy joined nursery about 4 months ago and has had persistent colds and bugs, this has left him with a permanent cough that is worse at night, particularly around 5am. It is a loose cough although slightly dry at night and he wretches when coughing and it wakes him up. His nose runs during the day constantly and he is very tired. He also has very soft stools all the time not sure if this is connected?
His breath also smells bad almost fishy, I have taken him to the doctor but they just say there is nothing wrong and it will go away. Can anyone suggest anything, I have tried drosera but this did not work, so just about to try calc carb as he has been prescribed this before.

*whether he has a mild disposition or an irritable diposition. How is his attitude towards his friends and relatives?
*At what time he feels better and at what time does he feel worse like in the morning, evening, late night etc.
*What do you think is the causative factor for starting his problems.
*How is his thirst for cold drinks, hot drinks and water?
*Whether the child prefers to move around or prefers to keep still.

he has an irritable disposition if tired but generally very happy with relatives and friends, although very clingy towards his Mum and very itrritable towards her.
He uses to wake up really happy, he is now very miserable. He is very irritable also in the afternoons, although just before he goes to bed he becomes very lively and happy.
He has had phleghm problems since he was born and has a tendency to eczema, so perhaps spleen weakness plus going to nursery and a weakened immune system. Although I think it got worse around Christmas when he caught a virus that went to his chest.
He is extremeley thirsty for cold drinks which is unusual, usually water, he is less interested in food and in his milk which is warm.
He likes to move around for most of the day.
