Hide them in food: If your 3 year old daughter refuses to take the presumed oral suspension of the antimicrobial, you can ask your pharmacist what foods it is compatible with to mix together. Alternatively, an intramuscular injection of an antimicrobial could be done but it may require multiple times and may be quite traumatic to you and her.

Take in for a shot: The world changes sometimes when the child has a choice between a shot (actually may be 2) & taking a med. If the med is to funky tasting sometimes they can flavor it to be more acceptable. Either way if the lung infection is significant & the kid needs rx they can do meds by injection. Zcall & see.
