My 10 month baby has fever 102f and doctor diagnodsed throat infecn. He gave pcm and cefpodoxime. After giving pcm still he has fever 101f, not lowering.?

In fact, most throat infections and fever combos are viral and may take 5-7 days to disappear and the antibiotics do not work anyway. And the fever of 102, while frustrating, is not in and of itself dangerous. ...Read more
