Retrovir as treatment for tonsilitis in children?

Dear Doc
My friend is HIV positive but her 3 year old child is negative because she took some drugs to prevent the virus from passing to a child. Now the child has tonsilitis and the doctor has prescribed Retrovir, which I think is one of the treatment for HIV. Can Retrovir treat tonsilitis?

Retrovir is not indicated for the treatment of tonsilitis and it can therefore, not be used to treat tonsilitis.
