Increase Appetite

My son is 21/2 years old. He gets cold/cough sometimes accompanied with fever very frequently, sometimes because of mixing with people or sometimes because of cold weather.
He is also a picky eater and when is sick he completely losses his appetite.
I am giving him ACONITE 30c thrice a day for cold and cough. Is there something that I can give him regularly to build his resistance and increase his appetite?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Aconite 3 times a day should ONLY be administered for 7/10 days at most .

After that you can start to PROVE the remedy.

There is another post on this site where a mother has been giving Thuja for THREE mONTHS .

THe child now has problems from overdosing!!.

STOP giving aconite. Part of the proving is LOSS OF APPETITE!.

you can just leave the sitation to right itself , or antidote the overdose by using ---
Sulphur 1m one dose on three sucessive nights.

Before going to sleep and 20 min after brushing teeth with non medicated toothpaste

Thanks, for the response.
I started giving him aconite three days back and he is getting better. This was suggested to me by my friend and this is the first time I am trying any homeopathy medicine on him.
My problem is that he catches cold and cough very frequently almost every month.
He also has a bad appetite.
Can I give him something to build his resistance and increase his appetite?
Please let me know if you need any other information.

For a finicky appetite and low immunity to colds (the former may contribute to the latter) get plain Alfa alfa tonic ( a tsp.ful twice a day to start with, morning and early evening - SOME kids don't sleep well with late doses)and Five Phos + Kali Mur (6x) - also twice a day. Makes a great difference if no other underlying probs.

Minsa's suggestion is probably as good as any thing but only use foe a couple of weeks -- then stop and wait , and judge results.

If there is an improvement do nothing until there is a backsliding .

In which case repeat the process.
