    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hiya Giaa,

    Honestly your best bet is to call his doctor and share his symptoms and concerns. The doc has your child's health history and can best give the advice you are looking for.
