User :   and is it common in kids ?
Doctor :   Your symptoms may suggest common cold or throat infection.

User :   why is it so?
Doctor :   Fever will be associated with any infection.
Doctor :   Sometimes there can be misreading.
User :   caz her forehead is always hot and armpits are not
Doctor :   If she has fever she may need augumentin also.
User :   is that also normal ?
User :   Since Monday evening she has fever so should I wait for another 2 days and then give antobiotics or start immediately?
Doctor :   You need not wait since there is a fever you can go ahead with antibiotic.
User :   what should be the dosage ?
Doctor :   You can use 5 ml of it twice daily.
User :   during day time Im giving her antibiotics and she doesnt get high fever, sometimes no fever also but after evening she again gets fever and thats when before sleep I give her Crocin DS
Doctor :   You should be using it both day and night time.
Doctor :   Crocin you may have to give whenever there is fever.
Doctor :   Yes that is my suggestion.
User :   should I send her to school or wait till she is OK? Because otherwise she is cheerful...
Doctor :   If fever is only mild you can send her for school.
Doctor :   Otherwise do not send.

User :   flu is it?
User :   and it normal and common with kids is it?
Doctor :   Yeah looks like symptoms of ful and nothing serious.

User :   and antibiotics is also fine right? because last time Doctor told me wait for 5 days and still if fever doesnt go then give it otherwise don't and just give Crocin and mftal alternately
Doctor :   So need worry just go ahead with antibiotics and crocin syrup.
Doctor :   You can go ahead it will definately help.
