Hello and thanks for writing in
Cold and cough is mostly due to viral infection and along with medication we have to follow some precautions so that it can not occur again and again. Precautions are:
1. Keep your child warm and covered with warm cloths.
2. Protect your child from changing weather and climate.
3. Do not keep your child in wet cloths for a long period of time.
4. Give steam inhalation if you can else nebulization can help.
5. Give proper fresh and healthy diet to increase immunity.
6. Get your child chest X-ray done if not done before.

Hope this will help you.

Welcome to health care magic forum,
Cold and coryza in childhood is common. and it is also necessary to develop immunity in child. But if it became severe and recurrent and medicinal help requires frequently then it should be treated properly.
Cough and chest congestion is more then do not treat it with allopathic medicine repeatedly unless it is an emergency. Otherwise it may turns to asthma after sometime.
To cure it permanently take homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy will increased immunity of child and also has no side effects. For proper homeopathic treatment detail history of patient and disease is required so consult to good classical homeopath and start treatment or contact me for further treatment.
