Brief Answer: relax Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. As per symptoms your child is having hyperresponsive airway disease. I suggest you to -give medication as prescribed by your doctor. -try to find any precipitating factor like change in climate/any fumes/dust/animal dander/any food items. These symptoms usually decrease in intensity as child grows. Since your doctor has stopped some food items he might have found association between them. Yes you can give saffron but give in small quantity. Also give him good nutritious diet so as to increase his immunity. Stop all kind of junk food. Hope I have answered your query,let me know if you have any further question. Wishing your child good health. God bless..
