Q.

Throat Infection

Dear Prof

My 3 yrs old Son have throat infection. I took him to the Paed 2 week ago and he prescribed prozef. Soon after finishing the antibiotic course the infection reappeared. Is there something I can treat him eith beside antbiotics? He have mild fever and decreased apetite.

He is also on Singulair - can Singulair cause throat infection?

Thank you

Singulair doe not cause a throat infection.The most likely cause of your son's throat infection is a virus as he has not responded to the antibiotic.It may help to try Sister Lilian's Tonsi-Care for your son and speed up his recovery.
