You are certainly not paranoid, but only worried about your child who is constantly ill. It is very common for children under 3 or 4 years of age to have very frequent upper and lower respiratory tract infections and even more common in those children who attend a creche.In general these children tend to grow out of their illnesses as they develop a resistance and immunity to the common viral infections. I am certain that your little girl falls into this group. In Cystic Fibrosis children do not grow at all well and have very severe episodes of chest infection usually requiring hospital admission,regular physiotherapy and continuous medicines.There is usually a family history of this illness.If you do have a positive family history and your child is very underweight and she does have bad chest infections it is always worthwhile testing for CF.
