Hi Thanks for your query.
From the symptoms that you have written, your child is probably having laryngitis
or acute tonsillitis
. Of course both may be caused by virus and may need supportive care like steam inhalation, warm fluids , etc.
You are justified in not wanting antibiotics under normal circumstances.However, the vomiting of your child of yellow sputum
is worrying and suggests a more serious bacterial throat infection
. hence, it is advisable to go to your pediatrician
. This will most likely need antibiotics which may be started after examination of the child.
Bacterial throat infections will respond dramatically within 24 to 48 hours after starting treatment and your child should be on the road to recovery. hence my advice is , to please take your child to the doctor. Hope your child recovers soon.
