Your baby appears to have a problem related to her immunity or resistance to infections. She needs to have her immunoglobulin levels checked to see if these are normal. These include IgA, IgM, IgG and IgG subclasses. A full blood count to assess the white cell count is also recommended.HIV status must be checked as well. Ideally your baby needs to be seen by a paediatric immunologist. These experts usually work at the major academic hospitals in the large cities in SA eg the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town.
