Brief Answer:
Could be a viral or bacterial pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi....greetings from XXXXXXX Looks like viral or bacterial pharyngitis.
1. How many days if fever is this?
2. Is the throat & inside of mouth red?
Suggestions-
1. You can give Paracetamol at 15mg/kg/ dose if temperature is more than 100F.
2. I suggest you do a rapid antigen test for streptococcus & throat swab for culture & start antibiotics if rapid test in positive.
See your pediatrician for the above.

Brief Answer:
Looks like viral fever

Detailed Answer:
Hi...
In a fever of 1-2 days, rather than fever, what is more important is the activity of the child, in between 2 fever episodes on the same day. Once viral fever comes it will there for 4-7 days. So do not worry about duration if the kid is active.
I SUGGEST YOU NOT TO GO FOR ANY OF THE LABORATORY TESTS IF THE KID IS ACTIVE AS HE SEEMS TO BE WELL WHEN THERE IS NO FEVER AND FEEDING ALSO.

I wish your kid a speedy recovery. If you need any future medical consultation and suggestions, I will be glad to help. You can approach me at the following link. Please find the link below.

she was diagnosed w/ group A beta hemolytic streptococcal infection that led to the development of acute glomerulo nephritis How did this progress from throat infection to renaldisease I have an 11 year old girl who is in end-stage renal disease. I am very confused and frightened. My husband asks the staff how this could have happened his little girl. The events leading to this situation began, and desires to learn more about how his daughter has diminished to the point of needing a kidney transplant. We we ask them how this all began, we were informed our daughter had a group A beta hemolytic streptococcal infection that led to the development of acute glomerulo-nephritis. We just would like for someone to explain/describe to us the progression from a simple throat infection to renal disease?
