Pediatrician 's  Response
Feb 2013
Continue the medication as advised by your Pediatrician. The leg and neck pains will subside gradually. Usually during winter seasons cold and cough episodes are frequent among the children and is more common in susceptible and prone children as they are more sensitive to these seasonal changes. As the age grows the frequency of these episodes will decrease mostly by 6 years of age.
