Pediatrician 's  Response
The symptoms you describe may be caused by either a virus or bacteria. In the case of a viral infection, the symptoms typically resolve in 7-10 days. Bacterial infections continue beyond this time frame. That's usually when we start to consider antibiotics. However, I would follow your doctor's instructions and begin the antibiotic the next day if the symptoms are the same or worse.
