Children often suffer from viral infections which manifest with common cold. It generally has an allergic component which is responsible for the runny nose. In case of secondary bacterial infection the discharge becomes thick and purulent. It can be associated with wheeziness as well. Your child's picture matches with that of a viral infection as described.
