Hi Rini, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Inflammation of the tonsils is one of the many diseases that are characterized by fever. And the fever is said to be cured after two days of dropping to a normal temperature without the help of fever-reducing drugs, so if your child's fever decreases due to fever-reducing drugs, or tomorrow the temperature still rises again, then your child is actually still feverish and tomorrow is considered a third day of fever and so on. This information is important the next time you decide to take your child back to the doctor.
Regarding complaints of an uncomfortable stomach, it is actually necessary to do further examination of what your child has eaten, and how the condition of your child's bowel movements is. Is diarrhea, is it slimy, is it bloody and so on. Strep throat generally does not cause digestive system complaints, so it is important to look for other causes of your child's complaints. Among the diseases that often occur are:
Food poisoning Stomach acid rises Bacterial infection Stomach flu
So our advice is, if until the day after tomorrow your child's condition does not improve with the medicine given by the pediatrician, or even worsens, then re-examine your child to the doctor even though the control schedule has not yet been scheduled. Meanwhile, you should keep your child drinking lots of water, consuming warm food and drinks, avoiding spicy, oily, fizzy, and chocolate foods. You can also apply a warm compress to the painful area or apply balsam to the abdomen. Hope your child gets well soon.
So, hopefully useful.
