Thanks Kasonde for your question, I would like to know how old your daughter is and answers to the following questions: Do you have a history of Asthma or allergy in the family? How long has the child had this issue? Related to food? It might be anything but a good history can help us, we may also need to see the pictures through our video consultation services. You can also upload pictures. That way we can advise well. Let me know if this helps. Teledoctor
She is 2 years old ..the mother has history of bronchitis attack about 12 years ago...no history of asthma or allergy in the family. The dry skin comes and goes...its been about a year...it could be related to food. Child did not breast feed as normall.what can be done to improve the immune system in this case? Will try get some pictures and share via messaging system in my patient account...as this is public forum. I hope this information helps.
Thanks for the details provided. We will need to review the patient to see the extent of eczema. Mean time try simple eczema creams sold over the counter and apply these regularly. Avoid perfumed soaps and clean house mites and dust. Avoid pets in the house. As to immunity, we would like to fully exam the child and also check the throat for tonsils which might be inflamed and this predispose to infection. It is common for a child to have few episodes of upper respiratory infection in a year and these tend to be worse for second born or later as other kids bring in infection in the house!Starting nursery schools so might make things worse. Hope this helps Teledoctor.
