Extremely sore throat been given antibiotics(2 Posts)
My throat is unbearably sore. I went to my GP today and they saw white pus around my tonsils. However she wasn’t convinced about giving me antibiotics as I’m still breastfeeding my 8 month old. She has prescribed me phenoxymethylpenicil
Anyone have any experiences?
Hi op, the prescription does seem a lot but it's also the dose that I had when I had scarlet fever (strep throat) basically very similar to tonsillitis so completely normal amount, were you given 7 or 10 days of tablets?
Try not to worry about your ds having a reaction, it would be almost immediate so you'd know by now so for example you had your first dose, breastfed him, you would see an allergic reaction within an hour or two of that so you'd know about it by now. Just try to rest, you should hopefully see an improvement with antibiotics in 24-48 hours.
