User :   Hi..I have a 16month old son who has stayed sick seems like since birth. He had repeated ear infections which eventually led to him getting tubes. He continues to get ear infections that are hard to clear at times but also runs high fevers...which his dr seems to now be a little concerned with since sometimes there are no obvious symptoms or none that would lead them to believe he should have fevers so high. Waiting to see if they are going to refer him to an infectious disease dr. He also has never slept well and I can't help but think his lack of sleep also plays a part in all of this. What are your thoughts and why should we do??

Doctor :   The probable causes for recurrent infection need evaluation to rule out specific causes.
Doctor :   However some important aspects like reduced nutritional status, feed regurgitation and other local problems are also know to cause these.
