What causes cold and lack of voice in a baby?

My son who is five months tomorrow has a horrible cold. He has now lost his voice. He is not showing signs of respiratory distress, no indrawing or nostril flaring. We have the humidifier going and he is still nursing frequently. However I m concerned about how dry and hoarse he sounds. Should I be worried or see my doctor?

Hoarsness of voice is quite common..
You have mentioned that his respiration is normal, no other signs of respiratory distress : This is very much reassuring and there is no cause for concern.

Take Care
