Hi I am Dr.kadhir,

Fever , cough , very painful sore throat could be a viral or bacterial pharyngitis. though we have scoring systems to differentiate , i would quite difficult practically.

There are few good remedies , one is antiseptic mouth wash goggling for 4 to 5 times a day for bad sore throat , next plenty of hot water and honey for dry throat ( soothing action) and paracetamol tablet for pain .

Its better to wait for antibiotics if she is not toxic or if her fever and sore throat gets better , at same time it is important to take a throat swab for culture as per doctors advice. If her problems are worsening then start on antibiotics for 7 to 10 days.

Thank you for your consultation in health care magic.
