Yes brijesh, if it is advised by your doctor you can take it.But without medical advise never take any antibiotic your self.Because if fever is due to bacterial infection then only antibiotic is useful.in case of viral or other fever it is not helpful and may cause problems.

hi my son is 2 yrs old..some 13-14 days back..he had fever (between 100-100.4 F) with cough and runny nose...the doc prescribed crocin suspension syrup (acetaminophen) for fever, cefixime oral suspension as antibiotic and syrup of cetrizine hydrochloride and ambroxol hydrochloride for cough and cold...for 5-7 days...The fever got over after 4-5 days and cough and cold considerably reduced. Day before yesterday my child again developed fever. the doc says it is viral...can the viral fever subside and reoccur again after 10-12 days or should we get the blood tests done..the fever still fluctuates between 100-100.4 F when measured under the arm.

I have a frontal headache almost every day. Sometimes the pain comes down the left side of my face (like a nerve pain). I have used nasal sprays, sinus medications, allergy medications, and I almost always have to resort to Imitrex which isn t real effective. I have been treated with antibiotics for possible sinus infection with no relief. I have MS but my doc says they are not related. I m just starting to get worn out from having these every day. Most days I wake up with the headache. What should I do next?

Good day, I have a question, for the past few weeks I have a burning sensation on the chicks the nose and somethimes the chin. My face is not red at all. I doctor prescribed me antibiotic for 12 days thinking it was a sinusitis but it is persistant. I don t have a runny nose and I do not caught at all. Also when I take the chick skin between my fingers I have a feeling the burning sensation is in the skin or vein not in the bones. Does that makes you think about a specific condition. Thank you for your help. YYYY@YYYY

Our daughter is 6 months old. She is taking an antibiotic for a sinus infection. I changed her sheets to a darker color and noticed that her head is sweating (it could have been doing this all along, but I never noticed until yesterday). It is enough to leave a large wet spot. She has also has had diarrhea. Should I be overly concerned for SIDS risk?
