Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am sorry to hear Jack is still having this cough. Without knowing the underlying cause of the cough we cannot rule out a contagious form but very highly unlikely if the cough is only once or twice daily. As a precaution your granddaughter should be washing her hands after handling Jack as well as after handling his toys or sitting in his favorite places. Again these are just precautions but it is very highly unlikely this will spread to humans, even young There are some home remedies that can help reduce the cough and give relief 1.) The steam of the shower when the cough is severe or constant2.) A little honey three times daily can help soothe the lungs3.) If you have a humidifier or nebulizer that would also be wonderful to use in this situation Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both!
