Always sick

Terra - posted on 03/11/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son is 15 months and is always getting these bad colds & coughs. When he was 2 months old he had RSV. Ever since we have been in and out of the doctors office. Finally he did a chest X-ray and it came back normal. Now we are waiting on the blood tests. But if that comes back normal we will see a lung specialist. Has anyone ever gone though this? Is there something I'm missing? I'm so worries about him I just can't get any sleep. Lastly I also have a 2yr old and he doesn't get sick & they share a room. Could it be allergies? What can I change to see if it helps out my little one? Thanks everyone.

I believe my doctor told us that when our daughter has RSV it's common that it reoccurs when they get sick so it's something they would keep an eye on. Thankfully she only had it the one time.

Yup. It could be allergies. it could be any number of things. My sister is dealing with the same thing. Her son is constantly sick, and guess what? He also had RSV as a baby. It really depletes their immune system. Make sure to feed him plenty of really healthy foods, use proper hygiene, and you can even give him vitamins.
