Weeks: A viral illness can last several weeks before you feel better. If you're not feeling better after two weeks of illness, I would see your doctor

Not likely: It's not at all unusual for patient to have some lingering symptoms after a cold. Normally that would not not be a sign of an immunity problem. Certain factors can possibly make one more prone to get ill, or to last longer: inadequate sleep, working too many hours, excessive stress, poor diet, etc. If symptoms of illness drag on too long then it's important to see a physician for evaluation.
