Hi and welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query here.
Advent is a combination of amoxicillin
and clavulanic acid
. Advent is a broad spectrum antibiotic which will cover both the gram positive and gram negative bacteria which will cause the upper and lower respiratory tract
infections. The dosage is not high for your son. The bleeding from the nose is called Epistaxis
. It is common in a case of cold and cough. The dryness in the nose will cause the bleeding in most of the times. The bleeding comes from the anterolateral aspect of the nostril
. To rule out any other pathology clotting and bleeding times of the blood can be checked. Decongestants to suppress cough may also cause the dryness in the nose. Hence the drug formula should be checked. Advent 228mg will be a lesser dose to your sons age.
Hence please continue with Advent 457 for 5 days. Give your kid lots of fluids.
I wish a speedy recovery.
