Depends: Many times few symptoms are just not enough to conclude as to what is wrong , a detailed history is required as to how long it has been happening , does she have fever or any other complaints with it etc. The best thing to do is have her seen by a Pediatrician to take a detailed history & do the examination.

Sorry: Unfortunately the height you achieve is purely familial . If you have short family members , your height will reflect similarly. There is no magic food or exercise that will affect your height. Although before any conclusion is made you need to be evaluated by your physician who can take all parameters into consideration before making an appropriate decision.

Need Rx: If your child was diagnosed with RSV 2 wks ago , you need to be careful with the severity of his symptoms now. If he just has runny nose with no breathing difficulty , he is feeding well & has no fever then you can wait for 1-2 days . If you think that you are not able to keep up with suctioning his nose as they tend to have Xs secretions , you may have to take him to urgent care.

Not sure of Dx: First of all I need to know what exactly did he have & what type of surgery was done ? What was his clinical condition before surgery? What type of diet he is on ? Does he have any enzyme deficiency ? Digestive system problem is very non specific term which needs to be specified. He might need to be re evaluated by a Pediatrician asap for his further care as he is a growing teenager.

Nothing much: If your son has only runny nose with sneezing , has no fever & he is eating fairly well , he most likely has either allergy or a viral illness & it will take its own course . He needs rest & plenty of fluids with medication to help his symptoms .
