The doctors cant seem to find out what is wrong with him but he has poor growth ( hes 15 months only weighs about 21 lbs) He has never ate good since he was born. Born with a huge fontanelle(soft spot) that still at 15 months is the size of a large newborn fontanelle. Just diagnosed with anemia, He has a protuding forhead and by that i mean it looks as if someone has hit him in the middle of his forehead and he has a big goose egg there but permantly. He stays sick more than hes well. Hes been on so many antibiotics. (diagnosed with asthma because he stayed sick so much dont know if its correct) and last but not least when hes sick which he is most of the time his snot has the most foul smelling odor just like infection or puss almost its lime green. (also has had this symptom since he was a newborn) Please help anyone
