But...lots of GPs do this. Put kids unnecessarily on antibiotics for a viral illness. Then when the child recovers from the virus, the parents wrongfully assume it was due to the antibiotics.
This is a touchy subject with me...prescribing antibiotics without evidence of a bacterial infection (like otitis media, tonsillitis, etc), just leads to antibiotic-resistance...and then they wont work when they are really needed!!
But...I haven't assessed Sienna, so you should follow your doctor's advice. (I can just grumble in the sidelines!!).
