Q.

Tonsilitis

Dear prof

My 20 month old has tonsilitis and my 3 yr old started with a fever last night. I gave him some of the orelox the gp prescribed on friday. I gave him 7.5 ml this morning. He felt much better during the day and does not have fever at the moment, should i continue with the orelox anyway? We phoned the gp who gave us a prescription.

Thanks

Yes, once you start an antibiotic you do need to complete the course.
