Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic.

I had gone through your question. I can understand your concern.

The sore throat and swollen tonsils could be secondary to upper respiratory infection.

I recommend the following.
1) A course of antibiotics.
2) Analgesics like tablet paracetamol for pain relief.
3) Salt water gargling. Add a pinch of salt to a glass of warm water.

She will be fine.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any questions, I am happy to help you.
Wish her a good heal
th and speedy recovery.
