Small child, nose block due to water, breathing difficulty. Prescribed normet. Safe medication?

Hi Doctor, When my grandma bathed my 2 months old baby girl, water had entered in her nose and she suffered to breath for a few, we took the baby to the hospital immediately and the Pediatrician checked, collected water from her nasal passage and confirmed the baby is alright now. Though they have suggested to give Normet syrub for 3 days. Do i need to take any immediate action now? Can i give this syrub? When I check about this syrub, I get to know it is for Diarrhea Pls advice..

Thanks for the query
I want to know, did he introduce any instrument in the nose. Even if he has used any instrument but in a sterile manner there is no need of antibiotic. Normet is an antibiotic containing norfloxacin and metronidazole. You are right. it is used mostly for managing diarrhea. You need not to use this normet. Be watchful for any local changes, if any then consult a pediatrician.
With regards
