My 3 yo has had a lingering post cold cough for about 3 weeks now. It just sounds like sinus gunk, is infrequent, and doesn't bother him, so I've been letting it run it's course. For bothersome coughs, we've had good luck with Gaia's children's cough syrup (they make two versions, "dry" and "wet" coughs). Ds likes the taste and he only needs to take 1/4 tsp, which is easy to do in a dropper.
The book I have, Smart medicine for Heathy Chdilren cautions against wild cherry bark in young children. Don't have the details, nor the book at themoment, but you may want to check that out 1st.
