Cresche Guard &  Zinplex Junior

Good day docter,

My little one 4 years old is at creshe since June 2012 and every single month she is sick. She is currently on Zinplex Junoir 10ml her pediatrian said that should be sufficient but obviously it is not. Could i give her Creshe Guard (Multivin Booster) 5ml in mornings and then the 10ml Zinplex in evenings with supper. Or should i just all together use something else. Please advise.

Thank you so much for your time.

Your daughter has the typical repeated infection problem known as 'crèche syndrome' She is being infected by children who have colds and continue to attend the crèche while they are ill and are not kept home until they are better. You can give her both Creche Guard and Zinplex. If she continues to get ill so often stop both and replace with Scott's Emulsion.
