Pediatrician, Cardiology Dr. Pradeep Kumar's  Response
Thanks for the query
High grade fever with sore throat and hemorrhagic patches on palate suggests streptococcal( a type of bacterial) infection of throat and pharynx. Continue azilid for 3 more days. Go for few blood test like complete blood count and ASO titre. As patches are hemorrhagic as you are saying give him paracetamol only for fever and pain till the blood report shows that there is no deficiency of platelet. As both ibugesic and meftal may cause platelet disturbances. Give him semisolid or liquid diet.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you and your family good health
With regards
