Spent hours in ER for nothing, 6 year old in serious pain. Help! my 6 year old has complained about a sore throat for a few days now. Yesterday the complaints got worse. She was restless throughout the night, ran a fever, and complained of stomach pain a
Hello. : Hello. This does sound frustrating. One of the hardest things for me as a mother, is seeing my child in pain. Children can actually get enlarged tonsils fairly easily. The reason that your daughter wasn't prescribed an antibiotic is likely that if she doesn't have streph throat that it will not help an infection that is viral in nature. Starting and stopping antibiotics is actually a major reason that we have developed so many antibiotic resistant bacteria in the us. There can be side effects for a number of antibiotics such as gasterointestinal upset, yeast infections and allergic reactions. Regarding a negative rapid strep test, yes sometimes the more definitive test may still come back positive. This happened to me a few months ago. If her temp rises to 104 or greater, she should be re-evaluated. Usually the major source of pain is from the temperature. If her fever is not well controlled with the tylenol/ Motrin rotation, consider addition of tepid bath to help control any fever spikes. If she is urinating well, then she should be adequately hydrated. There are lollipop lozenges in a variety of shapes and flavors that can be used at her age to assist with the pain of a sore throat. I hope she feels better soon. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
