Boils

Patient

Q: I have a 14 month old baby . He is generally a very active and energetic . However since one week , he caught cold and became very irritated . He would cry continuously and not allow us to touch his left ear . Our pediatrician said that it was due to cold and wax in ear and prescribed Cefixime (5 ml) 12 hours each along with paracetamol and ibubrofen. After two days pus appeared in the ear along with boils on buttocks and some on leg . The doc cleaned the ear but only told to discontinue Cefixime on further boils appearing . Please advice what to do ? My kid vomits if Amoxicillin is given in place of Cefixime.
