Please help! My 9 yr. old is now on her 9th day of being sick. She started with a sore throat, cough, and headache. Two days later, she was running 100-101 fever. On day 4, she was running 102-102.8 so I took her to the doctor. No strep; no flu; but he wrote an antibiotic prescription for what must be a sinus infection. I inquired if he could check for pneumonia or bronchitis, but he said her lungs were clear. (I still wonder how they can say that when it is a juicy productive cough and it burns in her lungs). Well, we have extreme digestive problems that run in our family, so I'm almost paranoid about antibiotics. So I decided to give her raw garlic (until then, I had given her garlic capsules). Her fever remained, so I added colloidal silver drops to her nose, and gave her a homeopathic sinus spray for infections. This morning, she awoke throwing up, and can't even keep water down. Besides worrying about her dehydrating from so many days with a fever/now vomiting, I am at a loss as to any other option I have than to go fill her antibiotic prescription. Today is her first day of not having face/sinus pain, which means that the colloidal silver is helping her sinuses, but it also means that a sinus infection is not the only thing she is battling. Would everyone on here break down and give the antibiotic, or should I now try goot since the raw could not possibly stay down now. On a side note, I had only given her one tsp. raw garlic before bed 1x a day. Was that too little? Garlic has always been our greatest ally, but for some reason, it is not cracking this illness like it has in the past.
