I know your child is uncomfortable but there is not much you can do but wait it out. The fda has warned against using decongestants in young children. You certainly know from your own experience that you can be stuffy for days when you get a cold. ...Read more
Was told over a week ago I had bronchisits and tonsillitis still have a terrible cough what could be going on ?

The correct way to treat tonsillitis is to culture the throat before treatment and determine what bacteria may be the cause and treat specifically. ...Read more

Inconsistent: It is difficult to state that you have "just got over tonsillitis. Still sore? The two statements are inconsistent. Either you have not completely resolved your tonsillitis (if indeed that is the correct diagnosis) or it is a persistent inflammatory process in other areas of your throat. For example, the pharynx, the base of tongue, or base of your throat may still be inflamed. See a physician. ...Read more

Is it possible for strep or tonsillitis to still get worse the first day after starting antibiotics?
Possibly: Bacterial infections can worsen, even if beginning antibiotics. Sometime patients feel worse in 24 or so hours due to substances released into the body from the death of the bacteria and cell death. Antibiotics do not guarantee cure.
