If you had a bacterial throat infection, like strep throat, and you have been taking the antibiotics as directed, then you should be starting to feel better. The strep bacteria that causes the throat infection is usually very responsive to treatment with antibiotics, and the symptoms typically start to get better within a few days starting the antibiotics.
Therefore, I recommend that you go back to see your primary care doctor
who prescribed the antibiotics for you. They will need to take a look in your throat again to see what is going on. The fact that you are not getting better on antibiotics is concerning, and it means your doctor will want to look for other potential problems. For example, sometimes a sore throat
infection can worsen and lead to a problem such ask an abscess behind the tonsil or in the back of the throat. In addition to your sore throat and ear pain, other symptoms that might occur with those problems would include fever
, trouble opening your jaw, or trouble swallowing, so make sure to mention to your doctor if you are experiencing any of those symptoms.
Get in to see your doctor right away so they can figure out why you are not feeling better.
