Tonsillitis Treatment Amoxicillin
I get tonsillitis maybe 1 or 2 times per years always get amoxicillin to cure it.How can I avoid this or other treatments ?
Tonsillectomy?: You don't want to let throat infections go without treating them as bad things can result. If you're having that many infections each year, you might wanna consider having your tonsils removed. If you're an adult (as i assume) then this isn't a trivial operation but it might give you some relief. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If i was taking amoxicillin for my tonsillitis will the amoxicillin help cure gonarrhea because my sex partner say he has gonarrhea?
No! See doc asap!: Gonorrhea (gc) has become a very resistant bacteria. To make matters worse, when there is gc there is often other bacteria that need to be treated. I would be concerned the tonsillitis could even be from the gc itself. Gc needs an injected antibiotic called Ceftriaxone to cure it and it would be worth being treated for chlamydia at same time which needs a different pill. See your doctor asap! ...Read more
My daughter is 17 months and was diagnosed with tonsillitis 3days ago. She was put on amoxicillin 5ml 3 times a day. Today she has a light rash.

What is the dose of amoxicillin in tonsillitis and how frequent should I take 500mg dose per day and for how much days (i am 23 year old man)?
I have really bad tonsillitis, been on amoxicillin 50mg for 2 and a half days, not clearing it as fast as I would like, can I take 4 a day?
Even better idea..: Get another antibiotic. There's a lot of resistance to the penicillin derivatives in the bacteria out there these days. Amoxicillin just might not be working at all, and might not work no matter how much you take of how long you take it. Rather than fiddle with the dose yourself, revisit your doctor and get a different antibiotic. ...Read more
