Um, why are you giving her antibiotics for a cough and cold - antibiotics don't work on a virus. The reason it clears up in 7 days is because this is how long it takes to naturally recover from a cold. Your antibiotics are not only not helping, they could be potentially harming your daughter. Frequent antibiotic use ends up rendering a child immune to their effects, so that when you really DO need them, they won't work anymore. When you say "normally gave her antibiotics", how often have you used them like this, and WHO is giving you these drugs?
