Hi,
Combating with cough n cold frequently, is a matter of concern. Try to maintain few things n few habit changes will help you. Have lots of fruits and specially those with vitamin C, that is any citrus fruits. Try to have one whole amla daily in raw form or in juice form. Do few pranayam exercises for strengthening lung capacity in the morning.

Hi,
From what I understand your immunity is really low. Have foods rich in vitamin c like nimbu paani, oranges, sweet lime, kiwi, berries, sprouts, mint, coriander, capsicum, tomato. Also maintain good hydration levels.
Exercise daily especially Pranayam as it helps in building lung capacity.
