Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If there is no response to that antibiotic then a change to higher antibiotic may be required.

Further investigations may be required to rule out other diagnosis.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
