I have him on a homeopathic cough mixture called centralin to try and get the phelghm out, light yellow in colour, also on nasacor once a day to prevent inflamation in the nose.

Paediatrician

I am not happy with this story. Your child has been ill for 4 months. It is difficult for me to be sure about the diagnosis going on the information you have given me, but his symptoms could be due to asthma. Please ask your paediatrician to see him.
