It's sold under the name Umcka in the US, don't know how it's sold in its native country!

Doctor can examine: If one has a tonsil infection, and it is a bacterial infection like strep throat, she will have taken antibiotics. If she is worse, such as having more pain, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, or too much cough, then it is hard to tell what is going on without another exam. That means seeing the doctor again. Bad things like a big tonsillar abscess or a neck abscess can happen. ...Read more

Baby 7 months GP diagnosed viral throat infection Medication Zithromax, Rinex+Mucospect, Adco Mefenamic Acid. 2 days now baby not feeding milk, only purity , but very minimum , I can't tell if it's throat or teething gums , please advise ?
Time to rethink meds: Any infant with a "viral" sore throat does not need an antibiotic and Zithromax can cause gastrointestinal irritation and poor feeding in anyone at any age. I see no reason for any of the other listed meds either with this diagnosis. The problem that will get baby in trouble is dehydration, which will happen if fluid needs aren't met. This may be from the meds. ...Read more
