Lingering wet cough in 14 months old?

On Nov 22 my baby came up with a bad cold, he got a fever, runny nose, weakness etc. I had to give Tylenol to lower the fever as baby was very weak.
After a month, the baby still has a lingering wet cough, doctor said lungs sound clear he said he may have bronchiolitis / asthma but he wasn't even sure himself.
The cough is productive from the throat, maybe is a postnasal drip?
I would love to take him to a homeopath but in my area they charge $250/visit, which is above my budget, so I was looking on line for a remedy.
Suggestions?
Thanks!

Q-5: How is the baby's behavior during this.
 
fitness 6 years ago
He plays and eats fine. When he gets the cough he continues what he is doing. Cough may come with a sneeze and a little runny nose at times, so I was thinking he may have a post nasal drip, but these are all theories as Western drs were not able to figure out whats going on.
 
bluesky77 6 years ago
To answer your question, he is calm.

Also, When he coughs I can hear the mucus in his throat, like he coughs to clear his throat, but again, dr. Heard his chest and back and said it's ok,

Thank you so much.
I would like to add a detail, he is teething, which may increase production of mucus.

Sorry for late reply, I went to a few health food stores in my area and couldn't find it, I'll try one more store this week.
In the meantime I tried giving him Hylands cold 'n cough syrup and it made him worse! I gave it to him 3days ago and immediately I felt his cough got worse ... So I stopped.
Today he woke up with a slight fever after coughing all night long, he did not sleep well. He has appetite, energy but he is not needy or clingy.
Should I still look for the calcarea or try something different? Maybe I should just buy it on line, would be faster...
Thanks

Correction: he is needy, he never wants to be hugged or held but he slept in my arms for 2 hours earlier today.
He is already feeling better thank Gd, his temperature is 100 last time I checked. Maybe Belladonna can help?
What can I give for teething?
Thanks
