I am 19 years old. Over four weeks ago, I started getting a sore throat and lost my voice for about a month now. I have a sore neck like something is grabbing it. My voice has been sore if I try and talk. I have mucus coming up, which is white colored with some blood. I am on Penicillin V for about one week. It just seems that the pain is getting worse and voice is still lost. Two weeks ago, the doctor said it was a virus and just keeps saying that it should get better soon. But, nothing is helping. Should I go back to the doctors or is there anything else I can try? I have been taking Paracetamol, a throat spray and an antibiotic. All the doctor seems to say that it is a viral infection. I am worried as it has been a month and there has been no change.
