Well, doctor is correct as for the infection or disease to cure medicine in a certain amount needs to go into the system. So you need to wait for the medication to start showing up effect. In children we cannot give heavy doses, or strong antibiotics like adults. Give the prescribed medication for prescribed number of days and untill then give small amount of warm semi solid diet only.
