My son has tonsilitus but has had it for over a week taking only paracetamol. Tonight he has complained about neck and ear problems and is struggling to swallow. Hes becoming frustrated with the pain. I've looked online and think he may have a Quincey, but 111 have said a doctor will ring back in six hours. Should I just take him over to the a&be now or wait for the 111 call
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
I would take him to A and E now
There is no point in waiting.
He is likely going to need antibiotics anyways
