This sounds to be an immune problem. You should take him to a doctor and run tests to see if he needs to be treated with 'IVIG' which will boost his immune levels

Hi,Haniyah,
You go for his complete check and find out why he remains sick.
I think he requires following investigations.
Routine blood for TC,DC,ESR,platelet count,Montouqe test,Hb.
Chest X ray
Urine check up.
After all reports we can conclude what he is having.
You consult your pediatrician
