A female asked:

Mycoplasma infection: With history of tonsillar swelling, loss of voice and now a worsening cough, it would be wise to visit your doctor. While this could be a viral infection, your symptoms are bothersome for a possible Mycoplasma infection. Additionally, it would not be improbable for this to be strep throat complicated by bronchitis--also something not to be taken lightly. Call your doctor for an appointment today.

Call poison control: Anytime there is a concern about potential medication issues--always call the regional Poison Control. These consultants are available 24 hours a day and have vast resources when attempting to deal with medication problems--in this case, a concern about possible overdose. Every child is different, and because there are so many possibilities of adverse effects when mixing meds, call Poison Control.

Best contact your MD: You have made a reasonable effort with OTC ant-candida (yeast) medication without desired results. It would now be best to contact your MD for a more thorough exam--as this skin disorder may not be due to a yeast infection, but another type of more resistant fungus. Sometime oral medication is required in more difficult cases such as yours. Also, this rash may not be infection but a form of eczema
