I have had a sore throat for a month now. I took azithromycin, the 5 days course, but it did not help. I had also taken clindamycin a week before due to also having a uti. I noticed that the sore throat cleared up a little while on clindamycin, but it returned. When I had gone to my doctor after two weeks of having a sore throat, she told me that she guesses that it is tonsillitis, but the test came back negative for an infection. I think that's odd, because I definitely see white spots on my tonsils. I have tried everything in the book for remedies like; salt water&baking soda, honey, ginger, garlic, turmeric, numerous herbal teas, elderberry syrup, ginger shots, otc medicine, etc. Nothing has helped. I just talked to an ENT, he couldn't see me in person due to Covid-19, but I showed some pictures I had taken on my phone of my throat. He didn't comment much on it, said it looked normal, but then I pointed out the white spots and orange in the back of my throat and he just said he sees it? He was no help at all. He didn't give much explanation to what it could be, he said he doesn't know what it is but to call him in SIX months. I asked how it's supposed to go away and he said it'll go away, "we'll knock it out". What if it doesn't?! he also said I need to try several antibiotics until I find one that helps. Is that even safe to do? I do not know what to do, my doctor told me she will not prescribe me more antibiotics even though the ent had told me to do so. She told me to "go to urgent care". Should I go to urgent care? would they be able to help? Does anyone have the same issue going on? I've read people have had sore throat for months or years and I am worried that this will be like that as well. Thank you in advance.
