You can continue breastfeeding your child further you have to maintain proper hygiene to prevent passing of infection to your child.

You can take baryta carb 30 4 tabs 4 times in day for 5-6 days.Tonsillitis is associated with fever which generally remains for 2-3 days at very high grade.

If still infection remains and there are no signs of relief after taking medicines for 24 can contact your local doctor for further evaluation

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
