Brief Answer:
it may be pharyingitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

It looks like case of pharyngitis or tonsillitis to me.
Good thing is that his fever has reduced.

Throat pain may take some time depending upon severity of infection.
Warm salt water gargles 3 times a day will help.
Also try ginger, lemon, tulsi leaves.
Continue treatment given by the doctor.

Just tell me his weight and dose of medicines you are giving.

Happy to help you.

I had tonsillitis about three weeks ago. I went to the doctor and was prescribed a Z pack. After finishing the antibiotics (about three weeks ago) I developed a rash on my face, neck, chest, and arms. The rash looks like lots of little red bumps. Sometimes they itch, but sometimes they do not. Do I need to see a doctor about this? It doesn t seem to be getting better.

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 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.
