Doses are well posted byvDr.Ashaji. But for your information, drug authority has discontinued/ banned combination of Cefuroxime & Azithromycine . Better to start Azithromycine with 250.mg OD on empty stomach.x 5 days.
cefuroxim 15 to 35 mg/ kg/ day in 2 divided doses azee 10 mg kg day in od dose
Cefuroxime is 30 mg/kg/day Azithromycin is 10 mg/kg/day
Cefuroxim dose- 25-35 mg/kg/day in two divided doses and Azithromycin 10mg/kg/day once a day.
If the child weighs more than 40 kg give adult standard size to them.
Cefuroxime- 20mg/kg 2 divided dose. Azithral- 10mg/kg OD.
Azithral500 mg. ODand Cefuroxime 500.mg BD.
