I agree with Dr Rahul Verma. Just to add to that, if the cough is worse @ night, find out if your son is has wheeze by consulting a pediatrician.  Some children start wheezing after viral infection. They may need medicines  to relieve wheezing.

Do not worry too much.. It will take time.. Cough can persist till 2 weeks.
Watch for danger signs like fast breathing (>40/min), poor feeding, persisting high grade fever, not passed urine for 10 hours.
If there is no danger sign and child is otherwise active and alert and playful; do not worry. In children most infections are viral and it takes times. If symptoms persists it is better to consult nearby doctor.
