  1. Hello and thank you for your question.The symptoms seen in your child can be seen in many conditions like nasal polyps,enlarged adenoids,gastroesophageal reflux disease,post nasal drip,asthma,chronic sinusitis,allergic rhinitis etc.Did you get your baby's ENT examination done? I suugest that you see an ENT Specialist.Give your child steam inhalation two times a day and cough lozenges during severe coughing.The specific treatment will depend on the cause.If it is due to Gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD) then he may need antacids,elevation of head end of bed ,frequent small meals.If it is due to sinusitis or post nasal drip then decongestants may be helpful.I suggest an ENT examination to rule out above mentioned possibilities.Hope you find this information useful.Please keep me updated on his health.Good day and take care!
