There is no documented symptom of the kind you specify. However, crying after a bout of cough may suggest pain in the abdomen, pain in the throat or the larynx
, or because the baby gets tired from the cough. Nose block may also cause the child to cry from frustration. You need to look at the real problem, which is the cough. Yes, it may be a good idea to go back to the doctor or the ER and ask them to check the throat and chest again, as a cough of more than 7-8 days is unusual with the common viruses.
