Thanks for writing to health care magic.

In a child having cold for such long duration we suspect sinusitis and prescribe antibiotics.

So your doctor has advised those antibiotics.
Does he have any fever?
Is there any history of swelling over any part of the face or pain there

Please reply so that we can help you better

Take care
