Upper respiratory tract infections could be due to tonsils or repeated allergic infections. Uncured infections of throat can lead to repeated ear infections.

Start Augmentin now, I do not know the wait but start in paeds dose for 5 day with syrup Rigix 1 teaspoonful (tsf) twice a day for 5 days and give Brufen in pain and fever and also, avoid cold and sour.

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