She is not sleepin for more than an hour every time.. 3 days up startin syrup. Rashes are cleared by applyin cream..stil cries.. Pls suggest regarding.. Thanks Radha.

ANSWER: Hi, Radha,

This medicine is not at all approved for someone this age.  What is being treated?  What did the stool culture show?  This is not how we practice medicine in this country, unless I am missing something completely here.  Give me some additional information and I will try to help.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

Hi, Radha,

Again, in the USA we conventionally try to find out what is going on before bombarding kids with a number of antibiotics.  Please consider this with your doctor.  You need to find out what is causing the diarrhea, and the causes can be numerous and all are not infection.  

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues.

I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
