  • Allergies? What do all these doctors diagnose it as? Did any of the meds given actually work? Have any of these doctors been an ENT?

  • Do you smoke?
    How often do you vacuum?
    Do you leave the windows open?
    Pets?
    Roaches or rodents?

  • Allergies. Find out what they are allergic to. feralxat gave a really good list of where to start. Her top 4 were my biggest problems growing up and my parents wouldn't reduce my exposure to it so I was always very sick from allergies. They say it's rare for a child under a year old to develop allergies. Rare. Not impossible. Both my kids have them and showed signs at only a few months old.

  • mine had runny nose and i always explained as daycare germs
    she also had poops that were either too runny or too hard
    one day she threw up, i took milk out
    three days later her speech was HUGELY improved
    i googled cows milk/speech and found tons of info from other moms that taking out cows milk for some can improve speech
    wow- it really did
    so i switched to almond milk
    AND
    her nose stopped running and her poops were just right in the middle- no more hard, no more runs

    switch to almond milk for a week, see if nose stops running
    almond has same good stuff as cows milk PLUS more, and no scary stuff feed to almonds

  • and not soy
    nothing against soy
    but if child has issue with cows, soy can have same issue
    do not remember why- just no soy

    i still let her have dairy
    but i cut down on it when she was 2, and i took out cows
    for example: if she eat string cheese and had a few in a couple days, she would get hard poops and running nose
    so i let her have it, just monitored her intake

  • chest problem? Breathing heavy. Do they maybe have asthma. And if there is a chest problem that's more than a cold it could be RSV. I would go to the doctor and have it checked out. good luck!
