In brief: Have him seen

It's hard to tell if he is having frequent, back-to-back illnesses or if he is having a recurrent infection that is not going away.
If he is having a high fever and is acting ill, it's best to have him seen by your doctor. If he is having labored breathing, he should be seen right away.
