I did a little research for this, and it's a website maintained by the University of British Columbia. I have a 2 1/2 year old son, so i cacn understand the frustration.....I know it might sound trivial, but i work a second job as a computer technician, and you'd be amazed at the information and answers you can get just by typing in your question on google.com! This is a copy paste from a portion of the article presented relating to your child's issue....(learnpediatrics.com/body-systems/general-pediatrics/sore-throat-in-children-clinical-considerations-and-evaluation/) I hope this helps
If the tests are negative, then the child's throat infection is likely caused by a virus and antibiotics are not indicated, unless a second bacterial infection has become established.
Viral infections of the throat usually improve in three to five days without treatment. Can you tell if a child's throat has a strep infection just by looking at it? "026 No!View Thread
My son and his mother have been apart for a little less than a year, and my son apparently just within the past few weeks, after being asleep in his own room, will come out and fall asleep against the wall outside he and his mother's door, or sit in his chair by his bed asleep, or stand next to his mother's bed while she's sleeping. Suggestions please????View Thread
