Our expert says:
I suggest that you re-consult your doctor to inform her about the new development. Ask her to do a throat swab and to have it analysed. This should give a clear indication if you have a viral or bacterial infection and if bacterial, what anti-biotics will be suitable to use. Sometimes bacterial infections are resistant to some anti-biotics.
