Hi Emma21
I think that your son has croup. My son has just recovered from this and the barking cough is the sign of it. Get him to the docs to confirm and then you may be given steriods for it to help clear his chest to help him breath easier. Sometimes this can be quite serious so please see the doc.
Hope this helps

thank you i took him to the gp and he said it is a mild case of croup, he gradually seems to be getting better, the doc said if over the next couple of nights he is bad then take him back and he will give him a single dose of steroids to help so thank you x
