Q.

phlegm on chest, teething, rash

My nephew is 6 months old. He has phelgm on his chest all the time and the nurses at the clinic says it' s normal. Yesterday his chest seemed worse. He is also teething and he has also developed a rash on most of his body, face, legs, arms.

Are theses all connected? Please advise.
Thanks

Paediatrician

Your baby nephew has eczema and probably is now developing asthma as well. He needs to be seen by a paediatrician and he will need to be tested for allergies.
