Q.

zinplex syrup

My LO is 10 ths old and weighs approx 8.5 kg - he is very small for his age but is alert, happy and crawling - his appetite for solids and milk has been very low since birth and feeding is a constant battle - he also suffers from eczema- I have seen this Zinplex syrup at the pharmacy which claims that it can increase appetite and aid in relieving eczema - Is this recommended???

It is worthwhile giving the Zinplex Juniour syrup a try as it is rich in essential minerals especially zinc and selenium and it may be of benefit to his eczema as well.
