Hi everyone. I am in an elementary school here and we have been seeing a lot of sore throats recently. Today I saw a child with a sore throat whose tonsils were definitely large but he had no pus on them, no fever and no tender/swollen glands. Gave him some ice water which helped with the throat pain and I was thinking to call/send a note to mom (whom I know but not well) and let her know but wasn't planning on sending him home. The child is 5 and is in good spirits.
Thoughts? Should I have done anything else?
thanks everyone for being my mentors since I'm in my district all alone.
