I have a 20 month old son, who has been sick for over a month. He has a runny nose, terrible cough, and no appetite. He has lost 5 pounds in the past month. I have taken to his doctor 2 times and he says that it is normal that it will clear up on its own. He will get a fever about every 3-4 days, which i can control and get it down within a day. He throws up at night also. He acts fine, I mean he's a little whinny but nothing too concerning. I just don't understand how he can be sick for so long and lose weight and it still be normal and classified as a viral infection that has to go away on its own. He can't blow his nose or cough the stuff up in his chest. So i don't know what to do. I feel TERRRIBLE that he's been sick this long. I thought it may be allergies, but my boyfriend & i have also been sick 2 times in the past month. (from getting it from my son) I have also taken him to a after hours clinic who also said that it was normal. Am i being just crazy about it or is there something that i can do???
