Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your daughter may be suffering from Pharyngitis or Tonsillitis.

You have mentioned that your daughter is not taking any food except milk.
Is she having pain while swallowing?
Whether she is having fever and cough also?

You should get a throat swab culture done to know the causative organism and the appropiate antibiotic according to the culture and senstivity report. Also get her blood investigated for Complete Blood Count(CBC).

Gargling with warm saline water will be helpful to decrease the pain and inflammation.

Antiinflammatory medicines like syrup containing Ibuprofen and paracetamol 2.5 ml thrice a day after meals will be helpful.

You should also get her examined by an ENT specialist.

She can take any food which she likes except cold, spicy and sour foods.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any query, I will be happy to help.

give ur comments
Answered by Dr. R.A. Singh 1 hour later

Thanks for your response.

Syrup P 250 contains Paracetamol which is antipyretic that is it will decrease the fever and also relief from mild pains.

I would suggest that you should first have a throat swab culture and then give antibiotics according to the reports. Since you have started Azithral continue its full course of 3 days and then give the antibiotic which is more sensitive as per the reports.

Also give some probiotic (Lactobacillus preparation) along with the antibiotics to prevent antibiotic induced diarrhoea.

I hope you are giving her the medicines under medical supervision.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further queries, I will be happy to help.

I am a 22 year old female with chronic swollen lymph nodes only on my left side,which then leads to ear pain and jaw pain. I had my tonsils taken out a little over two years ago because of chronic tonsillitis. I had blood work and the only thing that came up was that my liver enzymes were really high, they were 250. I had tests done on my live and everything came back to normal. Could my liver an lymph nodes be linked?

I am a 47 year old woman who, at a young age , suffered many tonsilitis
bouts. As an adult I still get tonsilitis but very few and far between. This time my tonsils have been sore for 2 weeks. This tonsilitis has been accompanied by 9 days of extreme coughing. The coughing has now diminished but my tonsils still hurt. What should I do?

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.
