Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Yes some times these relapses may persist late into childhood. Nobody can pin point and tell upto what age a child may have relapses.

Your doctor rightly started on levamisole therapy.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
