Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am Dr K. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and look forward to answering your question. i may need more information from you, so I may ask for that. My goal is to provide a complete answer to your question and to be sure you are satisfied with that answer.

I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions.    Cute photo!   Have you taken his temperature again.

Sore throat and vomiting is often due to strep in children.   He needs a rapid strep test.   Your gp can do this.  You should call or contact your gp or 111.

If the test is positive, he would need antibiotics.

Do not give fluid or food right after vomiting.   Wait an hour and start with ice chips or a popsicle.

Does this help to answer your question? Please let me know if there is anything you do not understand and if you have any feedback for me.

Tested his temperature again is 36.4

He was on antibiotics recently for 5 days (amoxicilin)and no change he was on 2 days and now he is worse

So normal which is good.   You can try the ice chips and popsicle.   But if he does not improve soon, he needs a strep test.    The antibiotics certainly should have helped.

The red spots on his face can also indicted strep infection.

Do you also know why he has these stomac cramps during night?They look really painful to him because he is screaming and struggling

Remember that this is a question and answer service.    So I can help, but there is no way to make an actual diagnosis.   Kids that have strep often have stomach cramps and GI symptoms.  I think he really needs a strep test.
