Even that was the problem with my son, and now I found out that he has tonsils. Anyways, about being underweight, if he is an active child, u should not worry. Being underweight is better than being obese. I give parle g biscuits mixed in little warm milk, when the throat is bad. My son loves it's taste, and does not puke because of bad throat, and it can be easily digested. Also, try giving him food in small quantities, when he is having pain in throat. Don't force.

Hi Gargi, I can understand what you are going through, I was in the same position sometime back, now my daughter is 3 and doing better. About the throat infection often, i started giving her Himalaya Septilin syrup for 3 months and it worked wonders for me. Please talk to your pediatrician and try it.
