Young kids are prone to get re-infections due to contact with infected kids in playschool , homes and any other possible places, and hence proper precautions and hygiene must be taught to kids so that they can avoid getting sick again.

With respect to your query, yous on might be having a viral or bacterial infection and the treatment for either of them varies. Supportive treatment is usually helpful in viral infections while antibiotics are needed for bacterial infections to be controlled.

Since without a physical examination, the exact treatment cannot be determined, it would be recommended that you consult a pediatician in person who can provide a proper medical opinion .

I hope this helps.
