Pediatrician 's  Response
hello there,
this looks like some kind of viral illness that is troubling your daughter. and for your kind information any kind of antibiotics do not have any effect on viruses so it would be a waste of antibiotics and resources if you use anti biotics without proper indication.
what you can do is to give her only symptomatic treatment like paracetamol or brufen for fever and pain relief and wait for the illness to subside on its own.
if you think this is not enough for the illness, you can get a professional advice from a pediatrician who can prescribe the drugs after proper evaluation.
