He has asthma & allergies. He catches everything going around school which has resulted in being home every other week. I take him to Doc regularly. He's on preventives: Zyrtec, Inhaler & Vitamins. I'm single & biologically his Grandmother. Legally adopted him @ 4. Not sure what to do & I'm getting snappy with homework catch up as well as not being able to get my basics done - hair/Doc - just basics.

has he been to see an immunologist? A good pediatric immunologist may have some answers for you. I have four kids and my youngest, an 11 yo girl was sick constantly. started with eczema, low weight gain, missed tons of school. She did not have asthma, but was always catching something, Really digging into why? Why is she always sick, and finding a few thing to change in her diet, washing her hands more often. Flu and pneumonia shots each late summer..

"I" feel better just hearing from another Mom! What we think has happened is he's become immune to the Zyrtec. Hopefully the answer is this simple.

Thank you for responding as it is very appreciated.
