Q.

Frequent flu

My nephew is turning 7 in October. He gets flu all the time., like 3 times a month. When he was young they tested him for TB and other diseases but he was clear. When he becomes sick he becomes withdrawn and just sleeps. He sometimes vomits. what could be the problem?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This cannot be due to 'flu' such and must be due to some other illness. TB is still a possibility as is asthma or some other chronic illness. He really should be seen by a paediatrician and a definite diagnosis needs to be made.
