You should not be surprised because flu is caused by a virus and antibiotics do not kill viruses.Just give your daughter plenty to drink especially water, give her Panado syrup for fever or pain and keep her nose clear with saline nose drops.It will help to give her a probiotic such as Probiflora as she has recently had an antibiotic. This will replace her good bacteria.
