About nine days into it, I asked my boss/family doctor to do a throat
swab. She looked at my throat
, did a swab and did a rapid strep
test at my request. It came out positive. I had immense problems with swallowing due to pain and after three antibiotics did not help, she sent me to an ENT, who put me on Clindamycin 300 mg qid with food. That helped but we never followed up to make the infection cleared.
About two weeks ago, I started having similar symptoms again.
