I've been on antibiotics for a sinus infection for 4 days. There is still ear pain and a very sore throat. Should I go back to the doctor or wait?

What did ur doc say? 1st, always ask doc what to expect & what to do if expectation doesn't come true. In other words, how long should it take to get better & when/why should u come back. 2nd, sinus infxn don't include ear & throat pain. Most sinus infxn don't respond to antibiotics so it's just a matter of time. Neither does common cold. See latest recommendations @ choosingwisely.Com: http://goo.Gl/ju8lw.

Uvulitis. Your uvula can have an isolated infection called uvulitis, which can appear just like you describe it. It most often causes a sore throat. If the rest of it is red and you feel feverish, you would most likely benefit from antibiotics. You probably need to get checked so you can get the right diagnosis and treatment. Best wishes .
