This is about my son who is 3.5 years old. He started having an allergic cough before seven months. The frequency was once in a month. The doctor said he is allergic to dust and humid weather and prescribed Romilast. He was fine. But, from the 1st of last month, he is having the allergic cough once again. As previous times, I went to doctor and he prescribed combination of Romilast, XL90 and Azithral. But, he is still having cough, though it is less and a very few times in a day. A few things for which I want to consult with you are his cough is not completely going away. He has lost 1.5 kg weight and he does not eat as previous and seriously look so lean. He weighed 14.5 kg last month. Though he is suffering from cough and cold and not eating properly, but still he is active. He goes to school every day. We have noticed, if he sweats heavily or goes through dust within a day he will start sneezing and then coughing. Please help us.

I understand your concern for your child.
1. Complete blood count.
2. Absolute eosinophil count.
3. Chest x-ray.
4. Mantoux test.
I suggest tablet Zentel (Albendazole) only today before sleeping. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.Regarding follow up:

Thank you doctor,
I am really worried about my kid's health. He lost 1.5 kg since one month. There is no history of chronic cough in my family or neighborhood. My husband and my brother-in-law had childhood asthma till they were 6 to 7 years old. Though I do not know whether this will be useful information for you, but still I am pointing out some information. I am not sure whether the childhood health is hereditary, but as per my mother-in-law, my husband had the same body structure in childhood. I will take him for the tests as soon as possible.
