Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding Pustular tonsillitis, and you are getting treatment in the form of antibiotic but not getting relief.

Here I would like to tell you the correct dose of aziwok is 500 mg in once a day dose for adults and for children 6 to 12 years 250 mg once a day. I think you are taking antibiotic in subclinical dose if your weight is 70 kg.

You may add in your treatment-

(a) Anti inflammatory analgesic.

(b) Warm saline gargling.

(c) Plenty of fluid orally.

By above treatment you will be alright in 4 to 5 days.
