Question: Hello Doctor,

I have a daughter aged 2 yrs 1 mnth. From last evening, she has running fever of 101 degree with sneezing and cough (little). We have administered Crocin syrup (5 ml) 2 times in 4 hours gap and also Allegra syrup (5 ml) twice daily as previously prescribed by the her doctor.

Now her fever is not coming down entirely and she is doing some restlessness. Her doctor is also not available today. We have Azithral 100 syrup. In previous illness, we had given her Azithral 100 and that worked great.

This time, however, we are confused that we should give her Azithral 100 this time also or not.

Please suggest and help.

Brief Answer:
Upper respiratory tract infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to hcm.
Can understand your concerns.

Fever with cough suggests that child has probably supper respiratory tract infection.

Azithral us an antibiotic and it can be given in upper respiratory tract infection.

However, it's better to get the child examined by a doctor before starting any antibiotic.

Continue crocin for fever. If fever persists then blood tests will be required.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take Care.
