Answer
It is  quite common for children to get several attacks of  cough and cold when they start going to school as they get exposed to different microorganisms. That is  how the  immune system develops. If his weight gain is satisfactory and he is active there is nothing to worry. It is difficult to prescribe  medicines without clinical examination. Please show the child to your doctor. If required he will get some investigations done.

Expertise

I can answer questions in the field of general pediatrics-questions regarding the development of children, immunization, feeding, weaning and common childhood problems like fever, cough and recurrent illness. Many of these topics are dealt with on my website Healthy Family Happy Family. Often a mother imagines that her child is sick when in fact there is no problem. Such a mother needs explanation and reassurance. I will not be able to answer specific questions regarding diagnosis.
