My 7 yr old son recently had k. Pneumoniae and
You should give anti-inflammatory medication to treat the pain.
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I understand your concern.
The neck pain of your son seems to be related to swollen lymph nodes.
Omnicef is one of the preferred medication to treat Klebsiella Pneumonia.
I would recommend to continue using this medication.
I suggest to add an anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen syrup to reduce the inflammation and the pain.
I would also suggest to give him liquids and rest.
If the symptoms continue and you don't see any relief I suggest a visit to an ENT specialist for further evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
