Thanks for writing in.

From history and his blood report, it seems that your son might be having pneumonia, as WBC is high and haziness in the lungs on left side.

Augmentin 625 is good antibiotic, please continue for 4-5 days more. It is advisable to stick to the current treatment plan.

Give cough suppressant syrup 2-3 times a day. Give light diet. Avoid fried, junk food and cold drinks.
For sinus congestion same antibiotic will work. Give hot water steam inhalation with Vicks or balm.
Give him complete rest.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask. I will be happy to help.

Wish your son speedy recovery.
