For the last 4 weeks now  I've suffered from a sore throat and now what looks like candida/ oral thrush . The first two weeks my symptoms were severe night sweats ,chills wheezing cough , sinus congestion, headache, very sore when swallowing [felt like I had swallowed razorblades] and white coating  on my tongue . The second week I bought over the counter amoxicillin 500mg twice daily for 10 days standard medication for Strep throat . After taking the antibiotics[ week two]  for 6 days the night sweats chills ,headache and severe pain when swallowing these symptoms disappeared. The coating on my tongue today is still present but now instead of white it's a slight yellow colour . After I finished my antibiotics  The third week I bought Organic non filtered Apple cider vinegar a tablespoon 3x per day diluted in warm water and colloidal silver [ 40PPM ] strength as both are good for fungal/yeast infections I've finished both after 10 days and my tongue still has a slight yellow coating and occasionally I bring up small amounts of white sticky mucus  . My male friend has also a yellow coating on his tongue the reason being that he told me that he went to a sex club and performed  unprotected oral sex also performed rimming on one of the escorts girls. He has been to the doctors and was prescribed medication Fluconazole for candida my friend has now taken two courses of this medication and it has not helped . I think that I may of been infected due to sharing a plate of BBQ ribs as we only used our hands this was 4 weeks ago  at the time my friend was complaining of a sore throat. Do you think that I need to see a doctor or maybe taking the Amoxicillin antibiotics has caused a fungal/ candida/oral thrush infection and should maybe try probiotics to correct the imbalance of over growth of bad bacteria in the gut . Probiotics might cure the infection i.e slight yellow coating on my tongue and fungal mucus ? Do you think my friend has been wrongly diagnosed and has oral chlamydia ? Can I get oral Chlamydia or candida from a infected person sharing a food plate using only your hands ? Sorry for this rather long Question

You can't transmit infections by sharing food from the same plate.

Have you actually followed up with your doctor after taking the antibiotics? I think that's what you should do. You've taken a lot of different things that are not working, and I think it's time to see your doctor. I don't think this is an STD.

thank you for your reply I'm going to go on a 2 week probiotic regime as I've researched that if your intestines and gut are full of bad bacteria as in a overgrowth of fungi / candida it can cause your immune system to be severely depleted considering that 70% percent of your immune system depends on a healthy gut . I.m going to take saccharomyces boulardii strain of probiotics and a multiprobiotic that strains that targets candida /fungi overgrowth . Also going to take a week supply of oil of oregano two drops once a day using a carrier oil [ olive oil] as this oregano oil is very potent . If there is no vast improvement in 10 days then I will make an appointment to the doctors once again thanks for your reply
If you have strep throat, you need to not wait and get treated now. Before spending all your money on all the probiotics, go see your doctor.
