Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
can occur due to different types of infections. Infections in children are mainly viral and bacterial though other types of infections can occur.
Antibiotics are prescribed in bacterial infections but it is possible the doctor suspects that this is a viral infection, in which case antibiotics are not required because they would have no effect.
Most upper respiratory tract
infections are viral, this includes tonsillopharyngitis. Over use of antibiotics results in resistance so that they do not work when actually needed.
You can consider continuing the use of the crocin
, this can be used every 4 to 6 hours. The dose would be based on his weight. In some persons the response is inadequate because not enough is given.
He needs 10 to 15 mg of the medication per each kg of his weight for each dose.
In addition to helping his fever,it would reduce the pain of the sore throat
A topical spray can also be used to help relieve the pain of the sore throat. These are usually available without a prescription. He may prefer cold
Other aspects of fever treatment involve the use of tepid sponging, wearing cool clothes and fan therapy.
I hope this helps
