Pediatrician, Cardiology Dr. Pradeep Kumar's  Response
Thanks for the query
High grade fever with throat pain and difficulty in swallowing suggests inflammation of tonsils or throat.
Meftal-p is an antiinflammatory and antipyratic, that's why there is no fever. The problem is not due to Meftal. There is high chance of infection so give him Ampiclox syrup( 250 mg/5 ml) 7.5 ml 6 hrly for 7 days. Avoid cold drinks, if possible give him warm water.
If condition worsens take him to the pediatrician for proper clinical evaluation.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you and your family good health
With regards
