My son is complaining of a sore throat. When I look back in his throat with a flashlight I see little red spots. Would this be part of a virus or something I should be concerned about?

Brief Answer: relax Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. Mostly sore throat is viral in nature. I suggest you to -give acetaminophen for pain relief -saline gargles 2 to 3 times a day will be helpful. -give plenty of fluids and soft bland diet. -give lemon tea . -watch for any other symptom like fever or cough and in case symptoms petsist after 48hours get him examined by pediatrician as bacterial infection needs to be ruled out for which course of antibiotic will be required.
