Our expert says:
Unfortunately infants and young children tend to pick up every infection that is going at creches and from other children. This is due to the fact that their immune systems are still building up immunity. The problem is that the baby then also infects you. I would suggest that you take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement such as Centrum or Supradyn Forte for a month to see if this improves your resistance. Ask the chemist for an infant vitamin and mineral supplement for your child such as Vydalin which you can also give him or her for a month or so. Do not exceed the prescribed doses esp for the child. Luckily young children do build up their resistance over time and this endless round of colds does stop when they get older.
