I can't get my 18 month old to stop screaming and crying!?

He was diagnoised with tonsillitis yesterday and has since had 2 antibiotic shots. He woke up screaming and crying and I cannot get him to stop. Is this normal with tonsillitis or should I take him back to his dr?! I can't console him. He doesn't want anything to eat or drink. Everytime I try to hug him he pushes me away. HELP!

  • Call his doctor and ask. He may have developed another problem or it may be normal. Call.

  • I would try and take him to a Chiro, for some adjustment. It could a number of things.

    Good Luck

  • It was because his throat was hurting so bad. and what do you know...the only thing I can give him is tylenol which isn't helping...
