Should I just request antibiotics?

I think you have to trust the doctors about whether antibiotics are needed or not. If it is viral they won't make any difference and contribute to immunity so it is better that they are not prescribed if not needed. But, I don't think theres any reason not to go back to the doctor if your child is still unwell and doesn't seem to be getting better. See what they say.
