Hello Monica, thank you for asking.
Cold cough is a condition that is very often experienced, both in children and adults. The causes are varied, can be in the form of infections, allergies, irritations, or even autoimmune diseases. The most common cause is infection, which can be a bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. Depending on the type of microorganism that causes infection, there are infections that are easily cured, some are difficult.
Causes of allergies and irritations can be in the form of exposure to air pollution in the form of cigarette smoke, factory smoke, vehicle smoke, smoke from burning garbage. In addition, some children may be allergic to dust, animal hair, pollen, house dust mites, or certain substances. While other diseases that might cause recurring cold cough, for example cystic fibrosis.
There are several possibilities of your child not recovering, including:
Drug consumption does not match the dose and frequency, and is not routine.
Microorganisms that are resistant to certain types of drugs.
A type of microorganism that has a high level of pathogenesis, causing more severe symptoms.
Type of drug that is not appropriate.
The existence of ingredients that cause allergies and irritations that are inhaled by children.
Child's immune system is not optimal.
Certain chronic diseases.
Consult this with the pulmonologist to get a more detailed examination. The doctor may need to do a supporting examination such as analysis of blood samples, x-ray examination, or others.
That is my explanation. Hope you are helped. Regards.
