Hi doctor,

My son is six years old. He has nasal blockage for the past two weeks. Now, he has developed a fever. His throat and tonsils are swollen. We took him to a doctor. The doctor prescribed him Benadryl 5 ml and Crocin DS 7.5 ml. He has not given any antibiotics. Is it fine? Please suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do not worry. You can give Augmentin DDS syrup 5.4 GM by 30 ml (Amoxicillin with Clavulanic acid) twice a day for five days along with the above-given medications.

Thank you doctor,

Can I give Maxtra instead of Benadryl?

Yes, you can give it. They are more or less the same.
