Thank you for your query.

At this age children do get frequent attacks of Upper Respiratory Tract Infection. This is very normal. In my practice I use antibiotic as a last resort. Septilin, which you are giving, is claimed to increase immunity but there are no trials to justify it.

I hope I have responded to your satisfaction. Feel free to revert back if any clarification is required.

Wishing your daughter all the best...
