Hi, I am Dr Sonia S V. I am an ENT Surgeon & Head & Neck Specialist.If you are having a throat pain and localised more on the sides of the throat you may be suffering from tonsillitis
. Do you also have swollne neck glands[ lymphnodes]?.If you have fever
it may be indicative of a more severe infection.Since you also have a young child it may be worth meeting a local physician or ENT Surgeon as you may need antibiotics for a tonsillar infection.Continue breast feeding the baby.Make sure you drink enough water, gargle with salt water and you may also take over the counter pain medications.
All the best
Dr Sonia Suprabha Venugopal
