Hello,

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Sorry to hear about your son

What's your question about this please?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
What should I do to get my child back? has no appetite, no energy! for 2 weeks it seems like another child!

When did the GP see him?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
This Monday!

Should I ask for blood test?

Well it's obvious he needs antibiotics for what sounds like bronchitis so he really needs to see him again

He needs blood work too

For now you can give him Mucinex and Delsym cough syrup in addition to the nurofen and calpol

Please let me know if you need any more information

My pleasure

I'm here if you ever need me again
