ANSWER: Let me know how many times it occured this year… has he lost weight ? How much ? What is his growth and milestones…?frequent infections are often caused by viruses due to inadequate immunity or diet in an incompletely treated onfevtion.

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: this happened 4 times since nov.2012. he did not lost his weight. his growth is ok because his weight was 2.300gm by birth. so whenever i asked doctor about his weight doctor use to tell me he is ok. but now he is saying his legs are also painig since last 10 days.

Child appears healthy with good weight… leg pan appears to be a nonserious issue… you may use paracetamol syrup for leg pain at times…
Calf pains are often caused by less calcium and less water intake…
Call back if no improvement in 2 months with cbc blood test…
