Should I Still Go To Work If I Have Tonsillitis
Depends on cause: Many people will have mild tonsillitis with common cold of flu and it would be okay to go to work, once you are beyond three days from the start of illness. However, strep throat needs to be treated immediately to avoid complications. Rarely, tonsillitis may be due to a serious infectious illness such as diphtheria which should be treated asap and you should avoid work till cleared by a doc. ...Read more
Will probiotics make zpack not work? Because im taking them together also ive been on zpack for 5 days and my tonsillitis still hasnt gone and has pus
22 months old have a viral tonsilitis, and on antibiotic 7 days .But her nose is still extremely stuffed. Saline drops and decong.Doesn't work at all!
Saline drops are it: If the tonsillitis is viral there is no reason for the antibiotic. Stuffiness are part of a respiratory virus and needs to resolve on its own. I know your child is uncomfortable but there is not much you can do but wait it out. The fda has warned against using decongestants in young children. You certainly know from your own experience that you can be stuffy for days when you get a cold. ...Read more

I keep getting tonsillitis a lot but do not always go to the doctors but i want my tonsils out, will i still get tonsillitis?
Had tonsillitis tried to treat it on my own. Most pus patches went away except one. Tonsils still swollen and it's been like 3 weeks. Why wont go away?
Severe infection: Tonsils can become severely infected and may fail to respond totally to even anti-biotic therapy - that's why so many people have to have them removed. I hope you did not self-prescribe the Amoxicillin - it's not a good idea to do that and could make your health problems into the future harder to treat. See a doctor to get that last bit taken care of. ...Read more

Diagnosed with tonsillitis Tuesday started zpack that night now Saturday and there is still swelling and white spots. Should we go in?
Wrong antibiotic: If you truly have a bacterial tonsillitis, then azythromycin (zithromax) is not a good antibiotic. If you have not had a culture of the tonsil, using any antibiotic is a leap of faith. Furthermore, if you are not allergic to penicillin, Augmentin is a better drug to chose as an empirical antibiotic. Zithromax has no effect against NTHI, a common bacterial cause of tonsillitis. Get a culture. ...Read more
