9 months old having cold and fever. Advised to give Novamox. Missed medication. What to do?

Hello, My son is 9 months old. He was having cold and bit of fever and crying constantly. Upon checking with doctor, his right ear seemed to have been affected a bit. Doctor advised Novamox drops for 7 days. We missed giving it for one and half day after giving for 3 days. Please suggest what to do. Can we continue the remaining dosage ?

Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
from your history your child seems to be having URTI, some times even ear will also be affected as there is connection b/w ear and nose, novamox is a antibiotic, it should be taken regularly for 7 days as your doctor has prescribed it, as you have already missed a dose, its ok, continue remaining dosage, if your childs condition worsens consult your doctor, otherwise continue same medication.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
