Dear JA customer
Thank you for providing quick additional info.
The symptoms you have described about husband is most probably because of a condition called tonsillitis
& most likely this is due to viral infection.I agree with your ER doctor.
The most common symptoms of tonnsilitis are a sore throat with pain on swallowing, possibly pus on the tonsils, either in a fine film or in spots that can be easily wiped off with a swab.Yes,the pus sack he is having on tonsils can be due to viral infection.
The fever,body pain,chills,difficulty swallowing are because of viral infection of tonsills.
Because his tonsillitis is most probably caused by a virus, antibiotics won't work and your body will fight off the infection on its own over next few days.The viral infection is very contagious,so most likely he has got this infection from the boys.
Following will help him greatly:
-Get enough rest
-Drink warm fluids to ease throat pain
-Following will help him greatly: Pour a 1/2 to a whole teaspoon of liquid diphenhydramine
syrup into small medicine cup and gargle with it. Try to keep the syrup towards the back of your throat for as long as he can.
-Gargling with lukewarm saline water is one of the best remedies.
-Throat lozenges will also provide great relief. They are available as OTC(over the counter).
-Continue taking Ibuprofen 400 mg for fever & body pains.
So I advice for him to wait & watch for the symptoms,they will go away in next 48-72 hours.
Hope this helped.
