MY FRIEND`S 5+ YR OLD DAUGHTER HAS PNEUMONIA FOR 12 DAYS WITH CONTINUOUS HIGH FEVER AND WBC GOING UP. SHE TOOK AUGMENTIN FOR ONE WEEK, THEN BIAXIN 6 DAYS NOW. HER DOCTOR IS REFERING HER TO A PULMONOLOGIST NOW. ANY OTHER IDEAS? PLEASE RESPOND ASAP. THANKS
Sounds as if she is being cared for appropriately, I would wait for the pulmonologist opinion and follow their advice.
