The effected child experiences pain in throat and chest congestion. Wet cough may weeken the immune system of the child making him vulnerable to other diseases.

Ususally, wet cough is caused due to a viral or a bacterial infection. If a child is allergic to substances like dust, smoke, pollution or environmental irritance, then coming in contact with these allergens while playing outdoors can lead to this condition. Climatic changes and health conditions like common cold, asthma, pneumonia and bronchitis can also cause wet cough.
