Yesterday my son went to the doc. He tested positive for strep and his chest xray looked funky. So the doctor prescribed both amox and zithromax. He has had 3 doses of amox and 2 of zithromax.
She excused him from school yesterday and today.
Well he is still sick. Fever 101.5-102 and is coughing almost non stop. He wont be able to go to school tomorrow.
So how long does antibiotics take? Do I take him back for another excuse? Wtf do I do??

Take him to the er, sound like it may have turned to pheumonia (spl). He needs a repeat xray.

Well she said his xray looked funky so I assumed that is what she's treating him for in addition to the strep because he's on two antibiotics.
