Sometimes,sore throat will not respond to levofloxacin.
You have to go for Antibiotic Cefpodoxime and potassium clauvulanate ,anti inflammatory drug.
Mouth gargling will help a lot
Add antihistamine tablet in the night
Avoid cool drinks,spicy foods,caffeine products.
Nothing to worry
It will come down
