About 3 weeks ago I had Bronchitis. I was prescribed Penicilin for 5 days. After taking the medication I was still ill so went back to the Dr who prescribed a strong antibiotic (1/day for 6 days) The bronchitis cleared up but I still have a post-nasal drip and mucous in throat I'm constantly having to "clear my throat". Last night my tongue was sore and when I looked in the mirror I was horrified to see a thick yellow coating and red spots. I tried brushing my tongue and have rinsed with Andolex-C but iit's still painful and coated. Is this from the antibiotic? Is there anything I can do or take to correct the bacteria?
