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

When will the pus on my tonsils go away after acute pharyngitis and tonslitis. I only got antibiotics two weeks after getting sick?
Tonsillitis: All the symptoms of acute pharyngitis & tonsilitis should go way after two weeks of appropriate antibiotics.

Your ENT doc probably knows this, but prescribed Augmentin 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
Are nosebleeds common with a sinus infection or allergies? Currently taking amoxicillin for acute pharyngitis. The pain is less but nosebleeds remain.
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
