Anon - Sore throat, also called pharyngitis, is the inflammation of the pharynx (throat). If your daughter is still getting worse and her fever is still going up, you need to call your doctor's office right away and ask for their advice.

Most sore throats are resolved in a short time, but they can sometimes result in more serious conditions. Signs that you need to contact your child's pediatrician include the following:

* Excessive drooling in a young child
* Fever, especially 101°F or greater
* Pus in the back of the throat
* Red rash that feels rough, and increased redness in the skin folds
* Severe difficulty swallowing or breathing
* Tender or swollen lymph glands in the neck

We wish the best for you and your daughter.
