Persistent sore throat and ulcers

Hello. Ive been suffering from a sore throat for about 4 months now. It started when I began taking corticosteroids for my weed allergies. I have taken them before without issues and allergies never caused my throat to be sore. A crater shaped white ulcer began forming on my right tonsil and it had white puss exudate. I visited a doctor that sent me to a throat and nose doctor. He said it's not cancer and that I am completely healthy - said there is nothing even abnormal there. Still, my sore throat has only gotten worse and the ulcer spread, also forming on my left tonsil. A dentist prescribed me sumamed (azithromycin) for Plaut-Vincent's angina, I took it for 6 days and after a week after the last pill, while the ulcers look less bulky, the pain is the same or worse. The pain is constant, sometimes hardly noticeable and sometimes very debilitating. I have trouble swallowing, speaking and breathing in deep. I'm getting desperate for answers and it's seriously negatively impacting my quality of life. What could the problem be?

See the dentist again and see what he says.

yes it was. It's usually a 3 day prescription with this particular antibiotic.
