HI,

IT REALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT KIND OF INFECTION THE CHILDREN HAVE, ANTIBIOTICS MAY BE USED IN PEDIATHRICS BASED ON THE AGE, WEIGTH; ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SOMEONES THAT SHOULD BE USED CAREFULLY SUCH AS GENTAMICIN, AMIKACIN AND THE RELATIVES. RIGTH NOW EVEN QUINOLONES SUCH AS CIPROFLOXACIN IS USED IN PEDIATHRICS.
ANTIBIOTICS SHOULD BE PRESCRIBED BY A PHYSICIAN ONLY, HE WILL EVALUATE N DECIDE.
RIGHT NOW AT WORLD INDISCRIMINATED USE OF ANTIBIOTICS IS GETTING MORE IMPORTANT IN ORDER TO STOP MICROORGANISM RESISTANCE.

consult your child's pediatric physician

It depends on the infection. Penicillin (or Amoxycillin, Amoxyl) are very common and can treat most childhood infections, however, penicillin allergies are common, so it may not be the right choice for your child.

Also, keep in mind that antibiotics are effective only against bacterial infections, not viral infections like colds and the flu.

And, if your doctor does prescribe an antibiotic, make sure you take the entire regimen that he prescribes - even if the child seems to be better. The symptoms will likely disappear within 2-3 days (depending on the infection) but the bacteria is still present and needs to be "finished off". If you stop treatment too early, the strongest of the bacteria will remain alive and reproduce, creating an infection that is resistant to the antibiotic.
