Brief Answer:
consult a pediatrician

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,

It is an expected fact that the child gets sick when there is climate change.

However, falling sick frequently every month is not that good. Yes, you could get your son checked by a Pediatrician.

You may have to do certain basic tests for him like complete blood count (CBC) to check his immune status.

Meanwhile, you can give him multivitamin syrup like Zincovit around 5 ml daily.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Regards,

Thanks Doctor, we have started with Zincovit since long.

i am showing him to pediatric Dr. Sharat XXXXXXX in Kurla but have been asked my family physician to stop seeing him as his dosage is on high side and using omnakatil

Brief Answer:
no need to stop seeing the doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,

I do not see a reason as to why you should stop seeing your pediatrician.

I do not think any doctor will put the patient on unnecessarily high dosage. Also, in my view, your son needs omnacortil.

Continue to give him Zincovit until around he is 11 years old.

Take care!
