My 2-year-old has tonsilitis. He is so sick. He had high fevers for 4 days, but they have now subsided. He started on antibiotics 24 hours ago when his tonsilitis was finally diagnosed after 3 trips to the GP. He has hardly eaten a thing since he got sick 6 days ago. Up until yesterday he would eat yoghurt, but nothing else, and not a lot of yoghurt either. Today he won't eat yoghurt, or icecream, or anything but a couple of small freddo frogs.
Can anyone give me any advice on tonsilitis. How long can I expect for the antibiotics to kick in and him to start improving? If he continues to not eat, at what point do I take him to the hospital? He is drinking a bit, but not heaps.
