Post viral weakness is very common, sometime for couple of weeks after illness; give him light and regular diet.soups, juices better. Skin dryness could be due to cold weather, apply any good moisturiser and will be fine.

If your son took your own mother's milk during early infancy then you need not worry...just take him to play in the park with as many same-age friends as he can. However, if he did not have your milk then his immune system might need be powered up by medicines prescribed by a doctor.
