hi,thanks for query.Adult or children the same prescription should not be used again without doctors advise.It is possible that the illness may look same to you but it could be different.In any case self medication of antibiotic is dangerous,it can lead to development of antibiotic resistance in body and leads to its loss of effectiveness.
wishing her good health.
