Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information. i have seen the picture. She is having pharyngitis.
Give her tablet cefixime 200 twice daily and tablet levocetrizine plus montelukast once daily. Do hexidine gargles and give tablet vitamin c once daily.
Give all for 5 days.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription, so get them prescribed by a local doctor.

Take care
Thanks and regards
