Q.

4year old

Our son now 4 years old, has the typical cough at night and the sneezing during the day.. anything I can give him now, like correx or demazin? or do I need take him to the GP?

Thank you so much for all your valued advice, it is like gold for the parents out there...

Thanks for your kind words.I am concerned that your little boy has asthma and allergic rhinitis. These two allergic conditions usually occur together in children of this age. Please take your son to be seen by a paediatrician preferably one with expertise in children's allergies. There are paediatric allergists in all the main centres in SA.
