I am experiencing swollen tonsils. The following also describe me: Sore throat, Spots on throat, and fatigue. Is prednisone necessary to take, or will clindamycin be sufficient to help get rid of the bacteria?
Viral? rapid strep: If there are "spots' on the throat, it would depend if these were exudates, or white patches, or red spots in the back. Not all pharyngitis is streptococcal; in fact, most of it is viral. Strep throat is characterized by fever, exudative tonsillitis and neck lymphadenopathy in most of the cases. If you are not having these findings, it is likely viral and you can spare the antibiotics. Check. ...Read more

Inasmuch as the oral cavity is not sterile, the patient's normal immune response is all that is necessary to heal the raw surface. I would think that chloraseptic would cause more burning. However it would be safe to use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
