Hello Doctor! My child is one year and 3 months old. He has runny nose since he was born . He sneezes continuously after bathing for 1-2 hours and then gets alright after sometime. He has been on formula feed. What could be the reason for the same? Will this issue ever get resolved on its own or does this require any treatment? How can I boost his immunity?

Hello Ma'am ! My daughter is 2 years old. She catches infection quite often. If someone at home is unwell, she would catch infection immediately. Her immunity level is very low. She has been put mostly on antibiotics quite frequently by her doctor. Will this affect her in the longer run? How can I make her stronger so that she doens't catch infection easily?

Hello Ma'am ! My two children aged 4 and 8 year old like to eat things like maggi, pasta , smileys , burgers, and other ready to eats. They don't eat food cooked by my wife such as roti, daal, etc. I have tried everything from scolding them, to eating with them to allowing them to eat their choice of foods once in a week. But they would together refuse and not try out even a bite. They complain of stomachache every now and then. Could their eating habits be the reason for same? Please suggest some remedies to treat their stomachache?
