Child frequently suffers with cold, cough, fever, always given antibiotics and nebulization. Permanent cure with homeopathy?

Hi Sir, My kid is 2 year 7 months old and suffers from frequent cold cough and very high fever 103 F . The cough is very severe and frequent like whooping cough .The doctor has precribed him antibiotic and nebuilze with Levolin and Budate 5 times a day. I want to know is this safe for children to give this much nebulisation? Also if this can be treated permamnantly via Homeopathy ? As of now doctor says your child has got allergy and this will prevail till he is 6 years of age; I am really worried as giving him antibiotic gives side affects on him like sores in mouth and he stops eating anything generally

Nebulisation with levolin and budate are generally prescribed for short duration. Once symptoms get relieved either it can be stopped or continue in a less frequent manner. At low doses particularly when nebulisation is used side effects are very few.
Yes it is true that in younger age group chances of allergic respiratory problems are more.
When there is aggravation of respiratory distress there is a possibility of infection particularly if there is fever, so antibiotics are given at that time to combat infection. Give him vitamin syrup if there are sores, you can also apply Zytee lotion on the sore for better outcome.
