Skin rashes in and around throat and sweeting, although continuous coughing has subsided.

No fever is there, slight jt pains in leg and neck, dr told due to hiclav kid rashes has come, these are all itching type.he gave some lotion. changed the antibiotic.

Good morning,

I have gone through your query in detail.

According to the symptoms you have mentioned, your child might be having a viral fever with rash and upper rashes are increasing, if the fever is not subsiding, then specific lab investigations would be required. Complete blood count, Dengue Ns1 Dengue for IGg and IGm .

Regarding your query of sweating over the forehead and neck, if it is not accompanied by breathlessness or bluish discoloration of lips and nails, then do not worry. For a 6-year-old child, the weight of 20 kilos is normal. So, the excessive sweating will not pose any problem.

Thanks for writing to us, hope i have answered your query.

Tahnk u very much.


Whether Upper Respiratory infection and HICLAV Kid has caused the rash to develop, the rashes have not increased so far. How many days to give Hiclav Kid?

Is it good to give montair kid plus for longer duration, as our peditrician suugests to give it for 1 month.

What is the reason for voice choked. And with nebulisation it is becoming clear.

Fever was never there , only on XXXXXXX one time we got 98.8 deg F

Pl revert back for my queries dr.

Good evening,

Thanks for follow up.

According to me , the rashes is mostly attributed to viral fever, not due to Hiclav medicine, it is amoxycillin based medicine , so unlikely to cause rashes, the duration of which may range from 5 to 7 days.

Safe to give montairplus medicine for 1 month, there wont be any adverse effects if given in a correct dosage. Do not worry

The change of voice is also attributed due to the upper respiratory tract infection.

So my suggestion is not to worry if the child is active , play full, normal voice and if there are no rashes.

Hope i have answered your query.

Dr Tahnk you for your guidance.

Now my daughter other symptoms have gone away except little pain in knee & neck



Dr no fever and cough, continuing the same medicines. Sometimes vomiting tendency is there. else she is normal.

Pl suggest , because dr here suggested CBC, PCV, PLATLETCOUNT TO TEST.

With minimum cost whether to test only for dengue stage 1. Then what test. As u suggested the tests that will cost around 2500 Rs here in XXXXXXX

Or is it a dengue symtoms, the rashes.

BEcuase of cold, she didn.t take proper bath for past 7 days.

Pl suggest us.

Good morning,
Thanks for writing to us.

As your doctor suggested , you can get the CBC(platelet count & pcv included ), DENGUE IGg and IGm and NS1 can be skipped. It can be done only if platelet counts are low.
By this way you can save upon the money spent. But along with the CBC test i would recommend you to get a WIDAL test to rule out typhoid and a SMEAR FOR MP , to rule out malaria infection.

Kindly review back with the reports.
