Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that in my opinion the treatment seems alright . Your child seems to suffer from viral infection and it takes at least 3-5 days to get relieved . I think you should continue the medicines for another 2 days and watch for response , if relief is there complete the whole course of medicines . Otherwise seek a second opinion . Take care.
