In brief: Runny nose and cough

Runny nose can cause your child to cough, and cough can makes your child to vomit.
When it lasts for 2 weeks, you should bring your child to see a physician. A viral infection should not last that long. If he/she gets bacterial infections, he/she usually looks sick, has colored phlegm and would need antibiotics. A 2 years old can develop allergies to the environment and presents similar way.
