this may be the wrong place to post this thread but i couldnt find anywhere else.....ever since firday i have been diagnosed w/ strep throat (or just throat infection) and givin bioparox..all the doc did is look inside the throat..no throat culture or swab. symptoms are simple...normal strep symptoms, headaches at times...abdomonal pains ar times and my throat at times can hurt but not a severe pain.....the tonsils are enlarged still and this started out from the lymph nodes enlarging but they aren't now. i can feel the tonsils enlarged but i can eat and drink better...if i rinse my mouth with the salt+water then it can get sore and drinking tea+lemon. is it possible to have it still, is the anti-biotic weak or is it a viral infection that goes away on its own...i do feel better but i still just feel the tonsils enlarged and they aren't getting larger or anything....i had strep 2 years ago and was painful but this infection doesnt give as much pain and its not constant...my neck is also sometimes stiff and slight pain but thats all associated with strep. as asked..is it viral? a new anti-biotic, is one needed? do i need to see the doc again? or will it go on its own.
