Paediatrician

This is not a good sign and she should not have yellow patches on her tonsils if she is on antibiotic treatment. She may have a viral tonsillitis or in particular she may have glandular fever. If the yellow pus is still present tomorrow morning she should be seen again by her paediatrician.
