Usually pencillin is the drug of choice and is given in dosage of 50,000 to  1  lakh units per kg body weight. In absence of identification of causative organism, a combination of  two antibiotics usually gentamicin in the dose of 5 mg to 7 mg per kg every 8 hourly and pencillin is administered. Your responsibility is to administer the drug accurately and watch for any untoward reaction. Chest physiotherapy  is given for effective drainage of the  pus.
