The nephew is not feeling well for the past two weeks. He was okay after the sister bought medicines for his fever and cough but the fever came back after two days of being well. We just continued the medication at home because the thought it was just a month ago since the last time we visited the doctor’s clinic. We are aware that it is not good to do self-medication but still the sister decided to do it. She just followed the last prescription given by the doctor. We just continued the medication hoping the nephew will get better soon.
Unfortunately, early this morning the nephew’s nose is bleeding. The sister is so scared as well as her husband. The bleeding happens three times that is why the sister decided to bring the nephew to his pediatrician. It was an abrupt appointment. We are glad that the doctor is not that busy. When we arrived at the clinic there is only one patient left. New prescription is given to my sister and advised us to have CBC- laboratory for the nephew. The nephew will take higher dosage of antibiotics for his cough and new vitamins for his immune system. After seeing the laboratory result, the sister felt better and calm. We learned lessons today, it is not good to self-medicate. Though we know this already but still doing it. Why? Because bringing to doctor is another expenses. Which is wrong because if the situation is getting worse, we still going to the doctor. So if you or your kids is not feeling well, go to the doctor and do not do self-medication.
