I have acute tonsillitis for the third time this year. My first was last year with white pus, I was prescribed with with Co-Amoxiclav. My second was a month later with white pus, I was prescribed by another doctor with Clindamycin but was not fast and effective as Co-Amoxiclav. Then yesterday. I noticed one of my tonsils in the right side was swollen again. I was nursing this by gargling Hexetidine after every meal. Now I have a slight fever of 37.5 degree. I need help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Sorry to hear about your health condition. With some rational medicinal therapy, it can be controlled. Tonsillitis has notorious tendency of recurrence and needs longer duration of treatment, particularly if you have immunocompromised disease. It would be advisable to have a throat culture before starting the next antibiotic therapy. However, if you cannot go to a pathology lab, then I would advise the following :
Please maintain the treatment precisely. Please followup after 5 days.
Repeat bacterial infection.Investigations to be done:
Throat swab before starting antibiotics.
After 5 days.
