Suggest medication for cough, ear and chest pain

My 4 yrs old girl has had an adeno-tonsillectomy 16th June. (Overnight stay because of moderate sleep apnoea and upper airway resistance syndrome and history of recurrent infections in past) Post-operative period; week1; fever, extreme pain, slight discharge from nose strils, spot blood once only from mouth, no oral bleeding week2 still pain, no fever, eating drinking well. extremely offensive breath, white scuff on throat week 3; 27th June-3rd July temperature each morning, and chesty cough, been seen by gp`s 27th and 1st, chest is clear, being told cough is normal 2nd July; white foam turnt red and cough is extreme especially at night and early mornings..makes her wretch and gag, complaining of chest and ear pain..gp`s have not looked at the ears and i am unsure whether her chest has been examined properly as she was not breathing out properly as told when dr listened with stetoscope.. The cough is there all day and sounds mainly coming from throat and with severe pain also sounds chesty cough..Child suffers and i am now concerned if this is truly normal, part of the healing process? Honey tea helps very little. Can you tell if i should bother her gp again? I feel she might need some antibiotics

It is better to give a course of azithromycin 250 mg tablet once a day for 5 days..as it seems to be a bacterial pharyngitis..along with honey tea and hot water would help
