Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Your child had an upper respiratory tract infection and as your doctor has examined your child and prescribed the antibiotic you can continue the medication.
Clamp kid forte contains amoxicillin with clavunate and it can be given safely to a one year and below that age also but in a prescribed dosage only.
Hope I have answered your query.
