Sore throat while on Flagyl

I had an endometrial biopsy two weeks ago, and came down with fever and chills 3 days later.  The doctor had me on two antibiotics, Augmentin and Flagyl.  My fever went away and so did the mild abdominal pain I was having, but the last day of my antibiotics, I got a very sore throat with some pits/pockets in my throat.  I have been exposed to strep, but assumed I shouldn't have picked it up while on antibiotics.  The medical information with the Flagyl said that sore throat and white spots could be a side effect.  What does it mean if it *is* a side effect from the Flagyl?  How serious is this?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If it is a side effect from flagyl therapy, it should resolve once the course is finished. If it persists it could indicate an infection.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
