Because your child having high grade fever with throat infection symptoms and signs you better give amoxicillin as advised by your doctor in proper dosage. If there are no signs and symptoms of infection there is no need for antibiotics . But if there are signs and symptoms if infection antibiotic is necessary to combat the infection so continue medication as advised by your doctor as he has examined your child and prescribed the medication.
