Hallo Liezle
Try pediatric Iliadin nose drops, and saline nose drops to loosen phlegm in the nose, and try and get a humidifier for his room. You can put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in the humidifier or rub his chest with small amount of Vicks vaporub. Bronkese or Bisolvon may help to loosen the phlegm in his chest. If he is short of breath, blue around the mouth or very listless, rather take him to your doctor.
