Small child, sleeping difficulty, low oxygen levels, cold. Taking steroids, allergy medicine. Cure for symptoms?

My grandson 15 months old, has had trouble sleeping since he was born actually. He wakes 3 to 4 times a night whimpering and or crying. He has been rushed to the hospital once because his oxygen level was so low when he was very sick with a cold . He has had allergy tests which have come up negative, but is on allergy medicine anyway. He has gotten very sick again with a cold bug again, the Doctor has put him on another steroid which hasn t helped much. Todays visit he was put on another antibiotic . The 4th or 5th one.
