Does your son attend a creche? It is common for young children to get repeated infections especially virus infections such as bronchiolitis if they are at a creche.It is important to keep your son's nose as clear as possible. Use Salex nose drops twice daily in his nose. Also give him Mucospect syrup 3 times a day to help to clear the mucous from his chest. Give him Creche Guard daily on the weekdays only to boost his immunity.
