This is Dr. David
you could be having a bad viral flu infection or influenza infection.
you should return back to see your GP doctor.
did you get a throat culture the last time you saw them?
some bacterial infections of the throat can be resistant in rare cases to penicillin.
you should also get blood testing to check if you have the influenza virus.
tamiflu antiviral agent can help you feel better if you have a viral infection.
you should be taking something for your cough like mucinex or robitussin or guaifenisen
make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids.
Yes they checked my throat and said it has white stuff on it not sure of correct name. Thank you I will go back to doctors
was it thrush on your throat?
what plaque like coating on your throat can be a fungal infection called thrush in the throat.
and this would need an antifungal treatment for your throat fungal infection.
no I dont think so doctor did not mention this. My tounge was a yellow, white colour and white puss I think on the back of my throat. Would this be thrush?
no, sounds like a strep throat
or exudate from your tonsils
or a bad viral or bacterial pharyngitis.
white pus sounds like tonsilar exudate.
you are welcome
I hope you feel better
