I take vitamin D3 - and I take 10 ml once a day from cod liver oil. Even the cod liver oil itself is good to take for inflammational issues - to reduce it. IF you have to take D3 as a vitamine pill, take 25 micrograms. It's the same as 1000 IU. Your son is quite young, so let's say 15 micrograms is ok for him.
I red that in Canada they are going to let a big group of ppl. participate in an investigation with vit D versus cancer protection, and the dose for an adult were supposed to be 1000 IU.
I hope he is feeling better!
All the best from Ingrid
