I started with fever, throat pain getting worse, worried my doctor not giving me right treatment



I’m a female 25 years old I’m normally healthy person. I started with fever on a Wednesday and severe headache. I went to the doctor they just gave me tylenol and ibuprofen. The next day I woke up with pain in my throat but I didn’t pay to much attention I was more worried with the fact that every 2 hours I was sweating and with fever. The next day, Friday it was bad . I wasn’t able to eat or to drink not even water. I started watching little white bumps in my throat. I went to the doctor again and now they added amoxicillin 500mg 3 times a day. I’m just worried they are not giving me the correct treatment or diagnostic . My throat pain is getting worst every hour. I can’t even drink or swallow the pills .i feel I’m swallowing nails please help me what’s wrong with me thank you

Hi
amoxicillin is the correct treatment for your Streptococcus bacterial infection
I recommend you give treatment 7 days to work, if u want to be sure ask for bacterial culture
Hope it is not a resistant strain,
Good Luck

Calm down..you are getting a good treatment ..you have a throat infection..
Keep on your antibiotic course till the end of course and continue if needed..get paracetamol 1000mg every 6h -8h if you have fever..
Try salt water gargling (warm).
To soothe your pain .
Strepsils can also help you swallow better ..

Hi,
its a severe form of infection.
Only amoxycillin won’t work.
you need to be started on a broad spectrum antibiotic,either oral or iv.
betadine gargles will help.
consult a ENT specialist.
Thanks

Its correct…
U ll start feelinh good in the 3 rd day , not go worry, u can start with injections in the first 2 to 3 days 1gm every 12 hours if you can not swallow
Also listerine gargling will be great, take also paramol 1-2 tablets every 6 to 8 hours only if needed to subside the fever and pain
