My son is 3 1/2. He was born 1 month early with a few minor complications (swallowed meconium & a hematoma on his head).
Since birth he's been advanced on his developmental milestones except speech. He has a speech delay but recently made some gains with therapy.
He's always been an active and fussy child. Very aggressive tantrums with little warning. Recently saw an Occupational therapist who said he's got a lot of sensory areas he's sensitive in (suggesting a sensory disorder or something like autism). He has a full developmental evaluation soon (for austim, sensory processing disorder, or other developmental problem).
He has SEVERE allergies to most airborne things. He has asthma. He has a sensitivity to milk.
He's sick every 2-3 weeks for 1-3 weeks at a time. He basically ALWAYS got SOMETHING. Currently he has pink eye in both eyes, an ear infection, sinus infection, and respiratory virus/infection.....all at once.
He has had everything. Bronchitis, Bronchiolitis, RSV, GI virus, stomach bugs, flu, pnuemonia (bacterial), pink eye, ear infections, sinus infections, upper respiratory infections, respiratory viruses, everyything. Generally multiple times a year.
Why is he ALWAYS sick? What could cause that? I'm pushing for further allergy testing and then going to talk doctor into more testing, because I want to know why this boy is ALWAYS sick.
