Hello there,

Azithromycin is an effective antibiotic against cough and cold, ie pharyngitis and middle ear infections. Ceodam is a cephalosporin which is very effective against skin and soft tissue infections.

So the decision to start azithromycin is quite alright. Since the course of azithromycin is only 3 days, it indicates that you must have completed the course by now. The temperature has normalised now but has the intensity of cough reduced ?

You must give some time for clearing of the cough. If the cough has worsened, her intake has come down, please get her reviewed once again.

All the best.
