Your pediatrician should be able to perform a good eval and guide u further
u wont be able to get strep tonsillitis but can def get strep throat.
I would have u checked for strep as untreated it could lead to rheumatic fever, and we dont want that!
Some children seem to have this effect with allergy medications.
It is not permanent and should get better within 24 hours of stopping it.
You may try a different allergy med such as zyrtec, singulair or other over the counter. I would stay away from benadryl for these symptoms though.
