DS is sick, we both havent been able to kick this flu we got on around 26th of June he got it..and has remained, but stayed with an occassional cough, and runny nose here and there.
Loss of appetite, the doctor a while ago, said not to be concerned as it can drag out a bit..
Well it is now August, so he has been sick, not really bad the whole time, but still been sick for 7 weeks now, and yesterday arvo, started getting it back bad, watery eyes, runny nose and chesty cough.
Now I thought it might be allergies, so I gave him some Polarimine (as he was prescribed it and I was advised from the doctor if he got reactions to administer it), and yet it made no difference, so I am guessing its not allergies..
He keeps telling me he is hungry, yet when I give he food he barely touches it...
As a parent, would you opt to put him on vitamins, or start toddler formula to give him a vitamin boost that he isnt getting from his diet, cos he's not eating.
We are going to the doctors this arvo, but I will more than likely be told there is nothing they can really do AGAIN.. as Kids are hard to treat.
So what would you do??
7 weeks is an aweful long time to have 'just the flu'.... When he isnt sick I'm getting him a flu injection. Being at Kindy I think he needs it.
But his immune system or whatever it is we have just wont budge....
Anyone else experienced this, what happened?? Or what is your opinion in regards to extra vitamins...
