Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear,
Thanks for your query to health care magic. There are both oral and injectable options available for illness. As long as you are taking orally well, you can give a try with oral medications. Only issue with oral medications is a lot of unpredictable factors affect absorption of the drug. Injectable drugs get directly into blood stream hence we can be confident about its absorption. You can give a try with oral but if it doesn't respond then please accept iv medications.
Take care
