Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello, Sorry about this problem - mostly virus may be responsible and please avoid taking him near coughing and sneezing persons, other kids may be giving him this virus.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

If he is growing well and feeding adequately then vitamins may not help. If not already supplementing, please give him vitamin D and calcium preparation, vitamin C drops daily.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Another reason may be allergy for which you may consult allergy specialist if there also is watering of eyes, scratching and redness around nostrils.
