    hello,is your son having difficulty in breathing during this cough?any fever,nasal discharge?if yes,then it could be a bronchopneumonia.Another possibility if it has been recurrent is bronchial asthma.it can also be just upper respiratory tract infect for which septrim didn't work for him.you can get augmentin tablets of 625mg.let him take half tablet morning and half in the night for 7-10days.presently if there is difficulty in breathing,looks sick,see a doctor at once.
