Customer reply replied 8 months ago
she said they looked viral.
We have just been back o Dr. THOAT swab not back till 6 pm tonight, and dr rooms closed then. So results not able to get ill on day morning.
Dr recommended cold and flu tablets, and neurogenic and diff lam spray to numb the throat. Chest clear at present - but wrote script for antibiotics in case it drops to chest.
My daughter was feverish, and sweating in bed overnight.
My daughter feels okay in the morning and her symptoms worsen late afternoon and in the evening.

Nurofen
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

OK

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

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
