Thank you for the question.
Need to be clear, before buying the drug at the pharmacy, have you checked your baby to the doctor? What exactly complaint did your baby experience? What is the doctor's diagnosis for your baby's condition?
Giving drugs to infants, especially antibiotics, should not be done without a doctor's examination. Each professional field certainly has its own competencies. If the doctor has the authority to examine, diagnose, and prescribe medication to the patient, the pharmacy has the authority to mix the medicine. Regarding the administration of drugs, this is the authority of the examining doctor. So, if you really get these drugs by prescription directly from the doctor, it is far more appropriate if you consult directly with a doctor who checks your baby directly.
Conversely, if you find that the drug is obtained without a prescription and doctor's examination, but only to buy directly at the pharmacy, then we recommend that you not just give it to your baby carelessly. Not all diseases are properly treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics are only appropriate for diseases that arise due to bacterial infections. There are also many types of bacterial infections themselves, and not all can be treated with amboxicillin. Improper administration of antibiotics, in addition to being able to make the disease not go away, can also cause dangerous side effects, including the risk of bacterial resistance in the future.
Therefore, for the various considerations above, you should check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
