My son often catches a cold.HELP!

My five-year-old son catches a cold infection very often. and while the cold goes away in a week, the cough lasts for four-six weeks. Should i consult a doctor?

— Jigna Kumar, Hyderabad

While colds are common in young children, a persistent cough lasting four-six weeks may indicate an underlying issue which needs medical evaluation. I recommend you consult a doctor who will assess him thoroughly. It’s always better to be cautious and rule out potential health complications.
