A few days: Hello. It sounds like your son is receiving treatment for a throat Strep infection. The fever should either be much lower or resolved in 3 day. His throat pain should be improved by that time as well, although he may still have some mild discomfort. If the fever or pain persists longer than 5 days, he should be re-evaluated. ...Read more

Infection: Physicians often recur to so called empirical treatment which is based on presumption that the presentation made by the patient is consistent with this or that. In your case your physician on a more probable than not basis thought that your case represents infection (bacterial) and that's what led him to give you 2 abx. The case, though, may be that it's not bacterial infection! ...Read more

Acute Pharyngitis: Your symptoms may be due to a bacterial or a viral infection. Bacterial infectinos of the tonsils or the throat lining are typically caused by streptococcal bacteria which respond well to Amoxicillin or Amoxicillin with clavulanic acid if there is no response. However, it is imperative that a viral infection like infectious mononucleosis is considered and tested for as well, consult with your md. ...Read more

Maybe: This could be mononucleosis, but in that disease swollen glands are usually an earlier symptom, and the patient feels tremendous fatigue. More importantly, if you've gone to ER for minor problem like this twice in month, it's time you had a doctor. An ER is far more expensive, and does not provide continuity of care. ...Read more

4 infected teeth pulled on tues. Today i still have very sore and swollen lymph nodes on the same side of my neck. On augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) still. Should i worry?

4 infected teeth pulled on tues. Today i still have very sore and swollen lymph nodes on the same side of my neck. On augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) still. Should i worry?

Probably not: Healing takes time. My first question is are you getting better each day or worse? By today the swelling should be starting to go down. Remember you had an infection of four teeth, then you had and injury - the extractions. Finally, antibiotics are not a miracle drug and, most of all, they take days to work. Drink lots of fluids, stay hydrated. ...Read more

Gland where tonsil would be is swollen. Can't go see dr because no money. Don't have tonsils. Should i take amoxicillin left from prior sinus infectio?

No: Would not take antibiotics without a very specific indication. The risks of complications far outweigh the potential benefits, if any. Hopefully you live close to a free clinic where somebody could take a look at this for you. If you have no other symptoms would just watch this. ...Read more

My glands are swollen and I am in horrendous pain; no painkillers are working. I went to the dentist today and got amoxicillin. Could ER give me pain relief?

My glands are swollen and I am in horrendous pain; no painkillers are working. I went to the dentist today and got amoxicillin. Could ER give me pain relief?

Depends: Sounds as if the dentist was trying to control infection prior to root canal or extraction treatment. Pain killers may cover over resolution of your infection problem. See an endodontist (root canal specialist) or an oral surgeon asap. Until you do, keep taking the antibiotic. ...Read more
