Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear,
Looks like you are having unilateral tonsillitis- infection of throat. Show it to a ENT specialist to rule out anything serious like quinsy (Pus collection in one side) as it needs to be drained for relief. He might prescribe antibiotics like amoxicillin which will definitely hasten the sore throat resolution. You have tried all home available options for sore throat and i think its time to show it to a doctor. Don't worry you will be fine. TIll then try some analgesics like ibuprofen.
Take care
