I recently had gotten sick with fever sore throat and fatigue. doctor said it was a viral infection and prescribed azithromycin for five days. i finished the antibiotics. however i noticed sores in the back of my throat near the hangy thing. they sort of look like cankers but not. they are red bumps. they dont hurt but im concerned whether these are from the sore throat when i was sick or a herpes outbreak.
The first time i went to doc for being sick he didnt give me anything for it. but felt wprse so he gave me the antibiotic the second time i seen him. i am not sire what this is. i am scared of the sores or bumps in back of the throat. i am not sure if its a outbreak or not. i am a very paranoid person and worry about anything. any ideas what the spres can be?
Hello grace. I went to doc about sores and redness in throat and he swabbed for strep and it came back negative. I asked him if it couldbe my first hsv1 peal outbreak. And he said since i have had them for two to three weeks it would have been gone by now if it was an outbreak. He believes that even with the seven days of azithromycin it wasnt enough to fully take my virus away and i still have the issues with the throat. He said since i had the sore throat then these sores are from that and prescribed me ten days of clindamycin and then diflucan to take away the yeast infection the. Clindamycin has always given me. Whats your opinion on this?
Oh by the way the doc said even thou my hsv1 is genital it can still travel up to my mouth? What do you think?
