My son is 1 week away from being 3 months old and for the second time since birth we have had the most unpleasant experience of having to see the doctor at my local medical centre
My son has a terrible cough, a high temperature, conjunctivitis along with flem on his chest and blocked nose.
What did the doctor do? Nothing that’s what! Told me to use nose drops but did not prescribe me any. He told me Calpol 4 times a day, which I think is wrong. So far I have been given 3 allotted doses, can he have it 2,3 or 4 times a day? I feel this doctor holds a fragile life in their hands and yet they don’t seem to know the correct dose of paracetamol for a baby! Regardless of this fact, did they prescribe me any Calpol? No.
Now my biggest problem with this doctor is that they gave me no instruction what so ever in how to care for the conjunctivitis and so it has now gotten worse. This is my second bad experience with this doctor
