1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Depending on the situation, treatment in childhood starts at 10-14 days and if improvement is slow another week may be added.
The problem of resistant organisms is seen occasionally & lack of any improvement in 3-5 days indicate need to use an alternate treatment.
