Had tonsillitis. Hurts to swallow. Taking amoxicillin and augmentin. Further?

I am 27 years old. I was caught by tonsillitis when I went to the hottest place for field work and drink very cold water containing ice of there was no other drink option to drink when I got thirsty . Next day after I had taken that cold water, I felt head ache.On the second day, the head ache become severe, felt pain to swallow food and my body become weak. And it was on the second day I went to clinic and the doctor ordered me to take one 250mg amoxycillin three times a day at 8 hrs interval for a week. After it seem just to cure me during the last days of medication, it started to come back. Then I had consulted another doctor and he ordered me to take one 625mg augmentin twice a day at 12 hrs interval for 10 days. Again after it seem just to cure me during the last days of medication, it started to come back. Then I went to the second doctor who ordered me to take 625mg augmentin. After a thorough in the laboratory, he ordered me to take 1gm augmentin and 500mg vitamin C twice a day for 7 days. Again after it seem just to cure me during the last days of medication, it started to come back. Then I went to another third doctor and he ordered me bezantine once a day for two days. After that it seem good but has little feeling on one side of my throat . I am still washing it morning and night with a mixture of salt and lemons and eating fruits as my second doctor orders me to eat fruits containing vitamin C. I have never caught by such disease before. It was about 45 days since the pain has started. What shall I do?

Hello,

Ideal would be to get a throat swab done and determine the causative bacteria.This will help to get treated with appropriate antibiotic.Secondly avoid cold water.Try regular warm water salt gargle.

Keep your nose covered in hot environment.

Regards.
