Hello there. Dry cough is cough without phlegm. If its cough with phlegm then its wet cough. It's better you take him to a paediatrician and get him checked out. Don't do any self medication if you are doing. Regards

Offer plenty of fluids. Liquids are important to avoid dehydration. Encourage your baby to take in his or her normal amount of fluids. Extra fluids aren't necessary. If you're breast-feeding your baby, keep it up. Breast milk offers extra protection from cold-causing germs...Consult nearest pediatrician they will do the needful.
