Anitboctic sorry I cant spell them

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
Okay
I am worried that you have probably developed a fungal infection in the throat
This happens when you have been on antibiotics and it kills good bacteria in the body and fungus takes over.
I think you need oral antifungals to treat this
