Tonsillitis- any advice

(1 Post)

My 22 month old has tonsillitis and two infected ears. She has been prescribed antibiotics.

Her temp is so high that she is panting. She is stripped to a vest. I can't get any food into her at all. She doesn't like her antibiotics and I forced them in this morning which was upsetting for all -now she won't even take calpol which she liked before. She is a bit too young to bribe and is not eating a thing anyway.

I'm waiting for doc to ring to change antibiotics. I was just wondering if anyone had a miracle solution. I thought about mixing it in food but she has no appetite and its supposed to be given on an empty stomach.

I'm worried she will get more poorly.
