Testing: Recurrent streptococcal pharyngitis usually reflect inadequacy of therapy to eradicate pharyngeal carriage of group A streptococci. Some patients are carriers of pharyngeal group A streptococci and have positive throat cultures for group A strep when they are cultured in the setting of viral respiratory tract infections. You may need further testing to differentiate between strep vs viral ...Read more

What is the longest for acute pharyngitis, my doc says it's acute but had for 16days given antibiotic on 10th day, is it acute for leaving it a bit late?

What is the longest for acute pharyngitis, my doc says it's acute but had for 16days given antibiotic on 10th day, is it acute for leaving it a bit late?

Acute vs chronic: Anywhere from 40-80% of pharyngitis is viral. Antibiotics on the 10th day was to ensure it was not bacterial ie strep (but strep test should have been performed). It is a little late to call it acute anymore...But that is just semantics. The focas should be on curing your situation. An ENT may be able to help. ...Read more

I was prescribed augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) by my ENT 5 days ago for acute pharyngitis (had pain/swelling only one side) and it still hurts now. Should I be worried?

I was prescribed augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) by my ENT 5 days ago for acute pharyngitis (had pain/swelling only one side) and it still hurts now.  Should I be worried?

Probably a virus: Non-response to Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (or any other antibiotic) isn't a surprise. Most infections like this are due to viruses, not bacteria -- and only bacteria can improve with antibiotics. Your ENT doc probably knows this, but prescribed Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) to give it a try, in hopes it would help. But of course to be safe, you should discuss this with the ENT doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed acute pharyngitis, 12 days since, fever gone, sore throat gone. Still red spots roof of mouth, white tongue remain. Should I be concerned?

Diagnosed acute pharyngitis, 12 days since, fever gone, sore throat gone. Still red spots roof of mouth, white tongue remain. Should I be concerned?

No: Acute pharyngitis is usually a viral infection. I wonder if your PMD put you on an antibiotic. If so, the white tongue could be a fungal infection. Red spots on the palate still could be the viral infection that persists. Do not be concerned, but if the spots persist see either your doctor or a specialist in oral medicine. ...Read more
