In brief: Sometimes
Kids get on average 10 colds/year. Sometimes they may just have gotten over one cold and then another starts especially if they're in daycare.
If your child is running a fever or you're ever concerned he/she has been sick for too long then you should take him/her to his/her doctor, if nothing more than for your peace of mind.
