Pediatrician 's  Response
As a parent one is sure to get anxious.Yes it would be good if one can get a CBC at this time as she is only 10% better.If her counts are high then probably she would reqire a change in antibiotics to a stronger and more specific against strepto like Mox+Clav preparartion. also one needs to check her throat for any congested tonsils or pustules in tonsils as she had difficulty in swallowing.

Bye.Take care.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
Since it is 5th day on antibiotic and child is not better .i suggest you to get her re evaluated by your pediatrician as she may need some investigations like CBC,x ray chest to rule out any infection for which she may need another antibiotic.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
