He is also a bad eater - what can i do to build his immune system - he went for blood tests to check his liver/kidney function etc and all ok.

Dear Mom
It is an immunological response to an infection where the antibodies actually cause inflammation and damage to the blood vessels. See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000425.htm
You can give him echinacea, or viral choice C and give him food supplements like Nutramen t.
