Brief Answer:
Give one dose of antacid and skip next dose

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I understand your concerns but don't worry. This won't harm your kid. You may give Her a dose of antacid such as half tablet of junior lanzol (15 mg) once to avoid associated gastritis and skip the second day scheduled dose of azithral. Give the third day dose of azithral as planned thereafter.

Hopefully it will be of help.
Take care
