Would you take your 1 year old to the doctor for this? *Quick update*
I called the doctor and they didn't have any openings tomorrow or the next day but since we got a lot of snow last night they had a lot of cancellations for today so I went ahead and took her in and she has bronchitis, doctor prescribed nebulizer treatments and tylenol/motrin. Not much fun, but definitely feel better for having taken her in.
My daughter has a sore throat and it hasn't gotten any better in four days. She's miserable. I've been giving her warm water and a little bit of honey in the water and that seems to help for a little bit most of the time, but last night she was in a lot of pain and I gave her baby tylenol for that and it really didn't help. She was up most of the night crying. I thought it might be strep throat, but I don't see the pus pockets in the back of her throat. Is it possible to have strep without the pus pockets? Her breathing is raspy but it doesn't seem like a lung rasp, it sounds like it's just in her throat.
I don't want to take her in and be told there's nothing they can do, but it doesn't seem to be getting better on its own. Your thoughts?
