Homeopathy DR vs. Paediatric allergy DR

My 2yr old has a very bad chest (dry cough) for months now (she attends a creche)We been using bottles of Rinex, Allergex, Mucospect, Asthavent, Zyrtec. I nebulise her 2 x p/day but as soon as I stop she starts coughing again. She also struggles breathing through her nose as if her mucous membranes are swollen (sometimes she has a running nose but it as if her sinuses are congested) I don''t know what to do, shall I try a Homeopathic doctor or a Paediatric allergy specialist, can you recommend someone in Cape Town Northern suburbs please. I''m very tired and at my wits end. Pls help.

Your little girl probably has recurrent viral infections affecting both her nose and chest.Her being at a creche is unfortunately part of the problem. Of course it is important to exclude an allergic cause as well. It would be best to try to get an appointment for her to see Dr Jan Vermeulen at the MediClinic in Panorama.
