Had sore swollen throat for a few days, only this morning the white spots appeared but they been gradually getting more of them. Temp ok for now which am surprised at, last time I had tonisllitis I was on here wingeing and hallucinating with a temp of 40 and spewing up my anitbiotics
I think (dd gets it a lot) it depends if it's classed as viral tonsilitis (and a kind of secondary infection due to some cold/fluey type thing) or bacterial....(at least that's what dd's doc told us, but we're in Italy and they're a bit obsessed with antibiotics) If there's a fever over 38.5 and pus on the tonsils, she says it's bacterial so we get antibs...otherwise not... (although there always seems to be pus and a temp tbh )
Went today and got given 2x the normal dose of antibiotics as Dr said looks bad. I had it really terribly in Feb this year and feel much better than I did then so am hoping the antibiotics might help to not let it get to that stage. Am falling to bits!! Lying in bed now and not got any plans to move
