She doesn't have it immediately but it develops in a week later she has contact it. Even she doesn't use air con, she normally gets asthma four to five time a year. why? Another problem is that, doctor, she always gets stomach ache whenever she eats river lobsters and sea crabs. This happens only this few years, not since she was born. We have any solution for her to eat and sleep comfortablly? She always complaints she has tried her best to earn money even with sickness without staying at home.
