I am hoping to get some help about what direction to send my sister in regards to her daughter. My neice is 16 months old and has been on anti-biotics almost 15 times since she was 5 weeks old. I am not convinced that she is just getting sick from daycare, because my sister tool her out for a while, ans she still got sick. She has had:
countless ear infections
eyes constantly runny and puffy
rapid breathing (when she runs fevers)
Is it possible for a baby to be this sick all of the time without there being an underlying issue? My porr sister is beside herself because the pediatrician just keeps saying it is a virus, but we honestly feel otherwise. There has to be a reason that this poor kid gets sick every 2 weeks or so.
Who do we need to take her to? We are lost because the pediatrician dismisses her concerns. PLEASE HELP!
