Hi. Sunepert syrup might help him but it sounds like this is a allergy problem and I suggest you ask his doctor about giving him Singulair on a daily basis that should keep this from happening over and over again
Let me know if you need any more information please

Ok great but what is singulair? Do I need prescription to get it ? How do we be sure if he got allergy is there test for it . Dose my son conditions serious illnesses?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
It's an allergy medication that isn't related to antihistamines and it is by prescription.
Yes, and allergist specialist can do skin patch testing on him to find out exactly what he's allergic to and then can give him desensitizing injections to rid him of that allergy.
But no, this isn't a serious illness that he has
