From my mom's experience a child could develop serious complications from a more serious cold. It happened with my son, he got into pneumonia. I went to hospital with my son who was coughing for one month, about 2 weeks ago. He still is coughing very bad, has many secretions, my other baby son got that too and now myself. We were given nothing to get at hospital but calpol which has nothing to do with a bad cough. In some cases, I would dare to suggest that children should be taken tests from throat or nose in order to make sure it's not something as a bacteria. It is very disturbing for a child to cough really badly for two months and nothing to be done in such cases. You can't just look at a patient and know he is fine without to make a simple test. I would like for all medical personnel to be more involved and helpful even with these kind of cases even if there are much more severe ones to take care of. Just paracetamol can't fix everything.
