Get him checked pls: Could be due to viral infection of the throat, and that is why the antibiotics did not work Get him checked by your doctor to rule out other causes of his symptoms

See doctor: Its possible that its a viral infection.See doctor, get swab done to rule out bacterial infection.Viral infections get better on their own , paracetamol, rest and hot fluids are the key to improvement .

Virus v.s allergies.: If he doesn't have fever, it is less concerning for serious infection. I would recommend observing him. Have your doctor re-evaluate him for possible allergic post nasal drip or sinus issues.
