Thanks for posting your query.
Azithral is an antibiotic syrup containing Azithromycin. If your child is having a bacterial infection in the throat, then the pain and fever should subside in three days.
For sore throat relief you can let him have XXXXXXX warm water for drinking several times a day, lozenges and warm liquids.
Avoid Acidic Drinks, Spicy Food and Sour Substances.

If the symptoms worsen - develops high grade fever, severe pain while swallowing and so on seek prompt medical help for a throat swab culture so that specific antibiotic can be started according to the type of her infection.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Thanks for writing again.
If there is symptomatic improvement then it is best to continue with the medicine. Do continue with Meftal P so that the pain in the throat decreases and the child can feed properly.
Hope my answer is helpful.
