The most common reason for a young child to have repeated infections like this is being at a creche where there is always one or other of the children with a virus infection who will pass it on the the other children attending the creche.It is important to boost your child's immunity by giving him/her Creche Guard or Scotts Emulsion every day.Even if your child is not at a creche contact with other children usually results in the spread of coughs and colds. So use the immune boosters mentioned above to boost your child's immunity.
