While he may not completely fulfill the definition of "chronic" at this point, he sure fits the "lay" definition, IMO, if he's been having attacks daily since April. That makes a stronger case for the diflucan.
While many people use this board and site mostly to find some answers to break a particular cycle, some of us (amateur researchers, I suppose) track many of the posts searching for tidbits of info that may get us closer to a real treatment, if not actually a cure. Sorry if I sounded overly pedantic, but these details are important.
The onset age thing is a perfect example. Even the best research studies I've seen so far only track age of onset by life-decade - - and most start at "10-19". Faced with no "1-9" category, what answer would a sufferer whose CH began at 8, or 6, or 2 put? My guess would be 10-19. BTW, in that particular study, onset between 10-19 accounted for approximately 20% of the responses. This was very nearly the same as the 22% who began between 30-39 and surpassed only by the 37% who began between 20-29. These percentages are approximate only because the graph I'm using isn't detailed enough to get to the exact number in each category, but I doubt they're more than a percent or two off either way.
Continuing to wish your son the very best.
