Thanks for posting your query.

Augmentin DS syrup has amoxicillin and clavalunate and is a strong antibiotic formulation reserved for significant bacterial infection as a course of five days.

It is unethical to prescribe prescription medications like Augmentin without examining the patient as it can have side effects like allergy, gastrointestinal side effects, renal toxicity, etc.

Kindly do not self medicate, consult your pediatrician, as viral fever is a self limiting condition not warranting antibiotic therapy.

I hope, you understand my limitation on this forum of not prescribing dosage of medicine. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.

I wish your child a speedy recovery.
