Dry throat, painful while swallowing, white lumps on back of throat, red tonsils. Histroy of recurring tonsilitis. Advice

I had tonsillitis at the end of feb. Went to see the doc and he prescribed penicillin which I had to take 2 tablets 3 x a day after my 7 day course the tonsillitis went. 3 days after I finished my course the tonsillitis came back, the doc them prescribed me with amoxiclav for 7 days again when I finished my course everything was clear. I've gone about 2 weeks without any problems but now my throat is sore again and feels dry, it also hurts a bit to swallow but I do not have any white spots on my tonsils but there are white lumps on the back of my throat and my tonsils are red.

Your suffering from acute on chronic phase of Tonsillitis. In the next step you need to have your throat swab taken for organisms analysis and culture and sensitivity before starting any other antibiotic. Frequent change of antibiotic is not recommended by any doctor that`s why your doctor has given amoxiclav in next course, he is right on his part
