My 8 year old son has had a cough last week that gets worse

My 8 year old son has had a cough for the last week that gets worse at night. It seems like he is congested and can't clear his throat so he cough a lot. He has for the past 2 nights coughed up clear mucus. During the day he does cough but not so much. His temperature is 97.8. I asked him what hurts he says he has pains on his neck when he coughs , i think that is because of how hard he coughs. Other than that he has no pain. He also sweats when he is coughing. My question how can i know if it's something more than just a cold. What can i give him to help clear his air ways. I gave him over the counter medicine for cold and cough but does not seem to help much. Right now he just fell asleep his mouth is closed and is breathing thru his nose.

My 9 year old has been having intermittent episodes of

My 9 year old has been having intermittent episodes of vertigo since March. It started right after she had gotten sick with a virus and the Dr. diagnosed it as post viral syndrome. It will disappear for a week or two and then she'll have a couple episodes and then be gone again. We we're on a plane on May 21st and her ears hurt her very badly on descent, for the rest of that night and all the next day she kept having what she calls the swaying feeling. Then it went away. June 9th and June 10th she had it happen again. Sometimes she feels like her eyes are moving along with her body. Last night she said she felt like her body was going up and down, not swaying. We've been noticing that it seems to happen more at night and only if she's laying on her right side. The episodes last for less than 30 seconds and don't make her trip or nauseous.

My one month old has some ulcer looking rash on both side of

My one month old has some ulcer looking rash on both side of his anus (see pic). Dr looked yesterday and said its from poop acid, but I am thinking it may be something else because it's not a solid area of red , it's actually ulcers that are very close together (they are not oozing)... Look like red spots. I have genital herpes and now I wonder if I could have passed it to him in utero? I always get my outbreaks in anus. Could he be having a genital heroes outbreak? He ha no other symptoms. Thanks!
