  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Prolonged cough,fever and trouble in breathing can be due to any viral or bacterial infection of the upper respiratory or lower respiratory tract.What medicines has your child been taking?What is his age?Antibiotics,bronchodilators form the mainstay of treatment in such situations.He may need blood tests and xray chest to determine the etiology.A possibility of pneumonia or bronchiolitis is there.Get him thoroughly evaluated because breathing problems can be dangerous. Keep me posted with more details.Take care!
