Q.

1 YEAR OLD - ALWAYS GETS SICK

From the time my baby was born she has been sick every alternate week with a tight chest and runny nose and sometimes high temperature.
I don' t k now what to think because we do have a aircon , and usually keep it on 27 degrees for her. I would think by now that she would be accustomed to the aircon. Is there any other underlying reason why she gets sik so often ?

Does your baby attend a creche? This is the usual reason for this kind of problem as the children keep on infecting one another.Try your baby on an immune booster such as Viral Choice junior once daily and give her a probiotic to boost her immunity. Use Reuteri Infant drops 1ml daily for 10 days. Give her Reuteri for 10 days each month right through the winter months.
