Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear XXXXXXXXXXXXX... or may I call you Vinita,

I don't see why your doctor prescribed an antibiotic when she does not have any markers for a bacterial infection. Treating fever with an antibiotic has become the silly routine of over 80% of the doctors in India, including even specialists. If her counts are normal, you just need to give her paracetamol (but ibugesic plus will do if the temp is over 38 c/100.5 F. If she isnt better in the next few days, consult a good pediatrician.
