My 2 year old son has had two cold within a span of two months. We live in bangalore India. He coughs a lot especially at night and morning after waking up. Some days he does not have much cough, some nights it s so bad that he wakes up from sleep due to bouts of cough and throws up. Should I be worried about him having primary complex? Please help.
