Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The problem your child has could be pharyngitis and is very common in that age .

He has to be put on treatment with antibiotics and you may have to meet a paediatrician for the same.

Meanwhile give him steam inhalation with eucalyptus in it which will soothen the throat mucosa and provide him some relief.

wish you good health.
