She first received amoxicillin, and it didn't help. Its been 5 days and she still feels bad. What would you suggest?
I may be confused about your question, but I wouldn't count on one penicillin shot to take down a fever. In order for that fever to go down or go away completely, she would have to take a few doses of antibiotics as well as Tylenol or ibuprofen. Hoping of course that the doctor prescribed the right antibiotics for her condition/illness.
If my daughter didn't feel better after 5 days, I would be back at the doctors office or at the emergency room, for sure, and I highly recommend that! Best of luck to you! I hope your daughter feels better!
