Avatar n tn I had my tonsils out 12yrs ago and every year or two I get a bad infection just like a quinsy (peritonsillar abscess). I've been admitted to hospital twice for IV antibiotics and I know the infection is like an abscess as it bursts. However no-one seems to want to do anything about it. It totally paralyses me for a week. The pain is intolerable. Even when I've not got an infection I can taste teh infection at the back of my throat and can cough little bits of pus from my tonsil root.

Avatar f tn Was feeling better last night after the first dose but had a rough night's sleep. I feel better in myself today, slightly more energetic and lively, but the throat pain has worsened if anything. Is there any advice anyone could give of how to ease the pain? I'm taking ibuprofen and paracetamol, the doctor prescribed codeine but I'm holding off that unless I really need it because one of the side effects is nausea. When should I expect to see some positive effect of the new antibiotics?
