Doctor :   Pl proceed with your query
User :   my both kids are not feeling well due to fever and cold and cough
User :   my son is 3.5 yrs old and my daughter is 5 months old
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :   Did you see a doctor for this?
User :   yes
User :   we are giving medicine since last three days to both but still fever is there to my son
Doctor :   What medicine and dose?
User :   medicine for him is felxson
User :   3 dose 7.5 ml to him
Doctor :   If you had already given for 3 days with over the counter medication
Doctor :   He needs a stethescope examination
Doctor :   and examination of Ear, nose and throat also
User :   he did the same
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   If so, Flexon itself is not sufficient now
Doctor :   He may need a course of antibiotic
Doctor :   In such a case, a reexamination of the lungs is required
User :   ok
Doctor :   So I better suggest a course of antibiotic for your son and probably a low dose for your daughter
Doctor :   This is the only way to tide away the current episode
Doctor :   I am sure you will have a regular pediatrician
Doctor :   He knows the children better than me, as it is not wise to give away any antibiotic at this tender age
Doctor :   Are you with me?
Doctor :   I have to close the window as you are not responding
