extreme swollen throat, tonsils, the right antibiotics?
Hi all, the last coupla weeks i have had a sore throat on and off. and not feeling bad. but the last few days, i have felt flu like (already had flu shot) with no cold. thought it was strep throat but it's a very sore lump on the right bottom of my neck. i'm 57 and i haven't had problems with this before. i still have my tonsils BTW. i am taking some leftover Clarimythicin antibiotics for the last 2 days, and ordered more today.
i feel better as far as the flu feeling but this sore whatever it is is painful and hard to swallow. am i taking the right antibiotics? should i see my GP? or just go straight to an ear,nose,throat specialist? (I HAVE NO INSURANCE) so i have only so much money. anybody have this or can suggest something better and cheaper? thanks BC
