My son is 3 now and suffers from chest cold and cough at-least once in 2 months which lasts for a week or more.He is very bony and is a poor eater too. i do not like to thrush him with lots of medicines at this age. Is it really needed to have alopathy medicines or home remedies or enough, if so please advise me with some remedies. Also please suggest a good diet for his poor health.

Pediatrician 's  Response
by the symptoms u r tellin it looks like a hyperactive airways. any family member having asthama? any dust or smoke prone area in ur surroundings or the childs day to day activities. poor eating can be sorted out by avoiding junk foods and untimely eating habbits and makin the food more interesting and practising family pot feeding. the chronic cough has to be taken care of first- consult a paediatrician as soon as possible, if the symptoms improve his appetite may also show improvement.
