Could this be thrush??

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Most likely your chil has got throat infection.

Viral infection is common and does not respond to antibiotics.

Will improve gradually over 3-5 days.

You should give liquid ibuprofen ( children's) at recommended dosage every 6 hours to control the pain as needed.

Probably it is better to keep pushing fluids to prevent dehydration.

Please discuss with his doctor again tomorrow if he continues to be in pain.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Ok thank you. Do you think maybe thrush?
He just woke up before and he had diarrhea everywhere.

Thrush is very unlikely as there is no obvious spots.

Do not worry.
