Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response
recurrent respiratory infection is your childs problem. commonly it can be due to allergy/asthma also. since he is having this problem for a quite sometime, we have to rule out TB-primary complex also. i want to know his wgt gain pattern. if his wgt is normal we have to think of bronchial asthma as a cause. avoid cold weather,cold drinks, smoky things in your home. he may need xary chest and mantoux followed that he may need inhational corticosteroid theraphy. contact me 09790863642.
