General Physician, Mumbai
Amoxycillin is given as TDS dose while co- amoxyclav is given as BD dose mostly. Why?
Clavulanic acid is not effective if given alone hence we give it in combination with amoxicillin and hence the dose reduces because two drugs are acting at the same time.

Most often it's viral infection. Fever usually settles down in 3 to 4 days. Cough takes 7 to 10 days. Continue same treatment. Small children get frequent infections because of low immunity.
