Frequent colds
Hello doctor, my son is 14 months old. He gets cold after second month. I still Bf him. Mostly he gets a bad nasal congestion and sneezing with high fever. Last time he had cough nd chest congestion too. So his paed had prescribed ascoril and cefpodea. This time, he has nasal congestion only but fever is really high 102.5F. I don't want to give him antibiotics and mucolytes all the time. As I have read expectorants should not be given below 2 years. I give him steam and honey though. So, please suggest what should I do ? Do these frequent colds mean lower immunity or this is normal ? Also, he always have high fever during cold which kind of scares me.

All fevers are not bad and they just mean that body is fighting infection. And recurrent colds also does not mean low immunity.  But u have to show to your Paediatrician so that he can examine that he is not suffering from any serious infection and it is just common cold.
