Hello,

The Azithral syrup is an antibiotic, and it serves for killing the bacteria that might have been causing a bacterial infection. You should give that to your child. If the child has a fever, you should give him Meftal or acetaminophen syrup. First days of use of Azithral, the child might have a fever, and you can give him Meftal or acetaminophen. If the fever continuous high for more than three to four days, you should go to the doctor. A febrile seizure is not something to be worried since the fever is under control.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Anila Skenderi
