13 year old DS2 keeps catching bad colds, almost flu, he develops a high temp and gets a bit delirious at night getting out of bed talking nonsense etc.). He hasn't missed much school because he keeps getting ill at the weekend or during holidays and is now on his third bad cold since new year.

should I be worried about his immune system? or has he just "outgrown his strength"as my granny would probably have said.

I cant answer all the question. But I put all my family on Tropicana orange juice daily, which cut down on a whole lot of family colds. From everyone getting 5 each a year, to about 2 yearly.
