Hello I'm Dr Chip
Was she also screened for strep throat?
Did her doctor comment on her swollen tonsils?
At this point it sounds like she has strep throat even with the negative test
So you need to start giving her the antibiotics for now
She can also gargle with warm salt water and use a lidocaine oral spray for the pain
Please let me know if you need any more information
