my 18 month old son has cough and cold for a week. then he had fever and conjunctivitis. conjunctivitis got cured in three days but the high fever remained, hence he was put on Azithral antibiotics. it is his 2nd day, but slight fever is there. the cough is so worse that he is not able to sleep and more or less coughs throughout the day too. he was taking Ascoril syrup but that does not seem to help much

My baby is 5 months old weighing 8 kgs. The doctor has prescribed Azithral 100 as he is having a green slimy stool. He already had a viral infection for the last 3 days which looks to be normal now but might have contracted a secondary infection.

My query is the dosage has been given as 4ml once a day for 4 days (20mg/ml). Does this dosage sound ok? I am a bit worried if my baby will be able to cope with this dosage.
