He's always getting sick!

My 2 year old DS has been plagued by illness since he was 3 months old. He constantly has a cold, cough, sickness, or fever.

We used to live in Dubai so he was used to temperatures in the 30's and 40's and living in the cold & wet UK doesn't seem to agree with him at all. Or me for that matter, I want to go back to Dubai so badly but my husband's work didn't go the way we planned.

I feel like I’m losing the plot, the doctor thinks he has a dust allergy and so we removed all of the carpets and replaced them with laminate flooring, changed his bedding to cotton rather than fleecy type material, took the curtains down and replaced them with wooden blinds but still nothing has changed. He's still always poorly. Plus he's very active and ready for nursery but he'll get even more sick around other children. I counted the days a week ago since he was last sick, he got to 11 days, then I invited my neighbour and her kids round, one of them had a cold and that night, he got sick! 

I don’t know what to do any more, I think maybe this is the way he'll grow up and I feel so sorry for him. I can’t take him to nursery because they wouldn’t want him there if he is always ill would they? And on the off chance that he is better I would be worried that he was going to get ill again. What’s the right thing to do? Has anyone else had a child like this? Did they grow out of it?
