dear there is no need to worry.You seems to have upper respiratory infection which takes couple of days to settle.Any antibiotic started needs some time to build its level in blood to inhibit bacteria.so for first couple of days you may have fever,please tablets for fever as advised for fever,drink plenty of liquids,hot ones are better,take light diet.Do proper rest and you will fine,bye and take care.

My 18 month old daughter is running a slight fever @ 100degrees, is developing a sore throat, and her breathing is accompanied by a loud, low wheezing sound. A child in her class developed strep throat earlier in the week and we are wondering if this is strep or another condition and at what point we should take her to a doctor. Her cough is very loud, dry, and deep without mucus.
