Dr. Phanindra Dulipala MD

Hi, What the treating doctor has done is correct. first we see with normal analgesic and if not relieved antibiotic is added. Regards.

Dr. Vinay Bhardwaj MD

Azithral is an antibiotic. Finish the course and that should help. If it doesn't then you may need to get some culture ans sensitivity tests done, find out which bacteria are growing and use a targeted bacterial treatment.

Dr.  T Chandrakant MD

Either of it is fine for fever provided you give the right dose for his age and weight.
