I wish to say that at this stage, the problem is quite solvable and must have got solved already.
It is very important to treat a kid with enlarged spleen and liver problems using homeopathy. Otherwise, there are no specific treatments as such in other pathies and the person (kid) would unnecessarily face lots of troubles life due to absence of proper treatment (like homeopathy) that existed.
My best wishes.
