I am being treated for strep for a second time- first with amoxicillin now with ceftin (cefuroxime). Can the strep spread from my throat to my chest?

Strep. Strep throat results in pain on swallowing with red, inflamed posterior throat. It is highly susceptible to Amoxil (amoxicillin) (penicillins) but some people may require other medications.
