Ciprofloxacin is a quinolone class of antibiotic drugs. This drug can overcome bacterial infections in the respiratory tract, urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive organs, skin, bones, joints, and eyes. The dexamethasone is an anti-inflammatory drug of a weak corticosteroid group.
Both of these drugs can be used to treat colds and strep throat caused by bacteria. However, this drug can be absorbed into breast milk. So that it should be avoided to be used by nursing mothers, except on the advice of a doctor, with the consideration that there is no other safer drug that can replace it and if the benefits provided by the drug outweigh the impact. You can read about this drug in the following article, yes, ciprofloxacin and dexamethasone.
You should re-consult with the treating doctor before. Don't forget to wear masks, conduct stone ethics and sneeze, regularly wash your hands regularly, avoid any physical contact and keep a distance (at least 1 m from other people).
To relieve symptoms, you can consume warm water and warm honey water mixed with lime juice. You also need to do nasal washing to relieve cold symptoms. Read about how to wash your nose here.
Thus hopefully useful.
