It seems your child is suffering from acute bilateral tonsilitis with enlargement of tonsil which is producing airway obstruction and hence breathing difficulty.You need not worry.Once antibiotics started ( augmentin ) it will automatically settledown with in a week.Meantime make her lie in lateral recombinent position, give her warm food, avoid cold drinks and sweet foods She also requires decongestants
