Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
While your son's symptoms sound viral in nature, it is worth seeing a doctor who could look at his throat and rule at a bacterial throat infection needing antibiotics.
Please see his doctor as soon as possible.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating, thanks!
