Hi,
Welcome to HCM
Your son is having chronic allergic reaction. The medicine is found to be very effective in management of these symptoms.
But for long term and effective treatment your son should be subjected for skin prick test to find out the allergen causing symptoms.
I would suggest you to take your son for skin prick test, so the allergen can be identified and can be treated approximately.
Thank you.
