My strep throat came back. But b'cuz my Coumadin (warfarin) level is high right now @ 3.6. I don't know if I should finish the antibiotic I have amoxicillin?
Check doctor. If you have recurrence of infection, you should definitely check with your doctor to make sure the original diagnosis was correct.
