Your daughter is nine years old and she requires 25 to 30 mg per kg body wieght in three devided doses. She is about 23 or 24 kg, so Amoxicillin is given her 250mg three times a day. But I think u should give her some ayurvedic medicines insteat of antiboitics. Thanks.

thanks for choosing health care magic.See the symptoms favor viral fever.So in most of the cases antibiotics are not needed.Even if is bacterial you should not give antibiotics on your own as it is not advisable unless prescribed by your doctor.Her weight and other things are needed to know before deciding the please see your doctor.

As you say she is having cold and flu, in most cases it is a viral infection where antibiotics are usually not needed.
Then also you can consult your doctor and let him decide the medicines required for your daughter.
Please for Heaven's sake never give antibiotic without the prescription of a qualified doctor of modern medicine.j
