My grandson aged 4 yrs frequently have Dry coughing suddenly which aggravates in night more.. pl advise for his cure..Also advise for increasing his immunity. Overall his wt is 14 kgs , physique , intelligence, appetite is good.. Thanks Madam.

Ans: Weight is within normal range for his age though slightly below average. A cough that is worse at night could be a warning sign for asthma. Hence I advise you to get him examined by his pediatrician who may advise certain tests.
A diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables build up immunity. Avoid processed and packaged foods especially sweet stuff.
