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.

Brief Answer:
increase nozuka dose

Continue rest of the medicine.

Hello,
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.

aWent in the 22nd to urgent care for what I thought was strep throat. I initially had a very faint sore throat the Friday before and each day got worse and worse. Finally on Tuesday it just blew up and fever was involved so I went to urgent care. No phlegm, coughing, runny nose, just a very bad sore throat with white spots on my very swollen tonsils, fever, chills, body aches and stiff neck. Doctor prescribed Amoxicillin, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen. Yesterday called and said I was not getting better. I was intact getting worse in which the nurse said strep culture was negative. Since Wednesday, on top of a very bad sore throat which has gotten more white spots on it, my cycle starts with chills when Ibuprofen and and Tylenol wear off. After taking them both, chills go away and I start to get really hot and sweat. Then an hour or so later I feel okay until the meds wear off and the cycle repeats. This has been going on since Wednesday. Nurse told me it's viral and should just let it run its course but I'm growing very impatient. Fever is getting higher amd higher. Just now I clocked it at 102 while sweating. This isn't normal for me. Any idea of what this could be and what I should do? I also can't remember the last time I had a BM.
