Sorry to note that you are having a rough time.
It is most likely exudative tonsillitis (on examination, there is white pus covering the tonsils) and streptococcal bacteria, diphtheria are main causes. Penicillin V, erythromycin
(for penicillin allergy
) are first line treatment options and also noted that you are allergic to almost all antibiotics except sulphur ones.
The secretions (or exudates) from the infected tonsils go down the throat (causing sore throat
) and then to the chest causing feeling of tightness. If you have asthma, then you feel this coming on quicker.
is an indication for hospitalisation.
Conservative treatment involves: staying at home to prevent social contact and you may catch other organisms; throat gargles may help; ibuprofen or paracetamol syrup to lower the pain and temperature.
Usually symptoms subside in 3-5 days.
I hope that was useful.
