| Antibiotic in toddler fever?
||[Nov. 30th, 2008|07:30 am]
My 3 yr old son had had throat infection with fever 3 weeks back and was on antibiotic (amoxicillin) for five days. Last monday again he is down with fever,sorethroat and cough with phlegm and doc prescribed him with another antibiotic (zinnat=cefuroxime axetil), but still after 3 days it didnt go away so we consulted another doctor who knows that we are reluctant to give antibiotic, he told to stop this antibiotic and he prescribed antihistamine cough syrup and told us to wait for it to go. However today is the 6th day and stil he is running a fever (38.2 deg C), we are planning to take him back to doc today, and sure that he will give us amoxicillin again. should we give him antibiotic or no......???? is it safe to give him tylenol for this straight 6 days??? i m a worried and confused mother.... please suggestion
PS. My son hates the taste of antibiotic and fights violently when given, and it often ends up being spat out oir vomited.
