I had a sore throat about 8 weeks ago and roughy a week in I noticed a lump on one side of my throat. About ten days on I found it increasingly difficult to open my mouth, swallow or speak. I went to the doctor who put me on penicillin. The problem went away, but only to re-surface. I then went back to the doctor who gave me a course of co-amoxicillin for ten days and told me that its just severe sore throat or could be tonsil stones. I again completed this course of anti biotics and my problem again seemed to clear up for roughly a week, but only to return with a vengance. This time I had a lump on my throat which was quite large, i could barely speak or swallow and was referred to A&E, they diagnosed me with a quinsy and referred me to a ENT specialist, who again put me on another course of amoxicillin for ten days. The ENT doctor said he couldnt pop the abessess as it was too small, but yet again he couldnt see into my throat as my throat was too swollen and gave me another course of amoxicillin. I completed this fourth course of antibiotics a week ago, but now I can feel this quinsy returning. What can I do to make it go away for good, as I feel im on a never ending cycle of anti biotics, whereby all they do is suppress this quinsy but dont actually get rid of it. Is it normal to get a quinsy four times in 8 weeks?? Im also worried I'm taking too many antibiotics over a short period of time and my body could potentially get immune to them. Is there some sort of secret terminology that I need to tell my doctor in order to get it removed???Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
