Hello
Thank You for contatcing HCM.

It depends upon the type of infection patient is suffering from. Different antibiotics are for different diseases caused by different microorganisms. Without knowing the root cause one can not prescribe an antibiotic.

As your child is having High grade fever, i would recommend you to do cold water sponging to bring temperature at a lower level.
