I ve taken the antibiotics plus alieve, and it seems to be getting worse. My throat is swollen, specifically, tonsils, tongue , and gums/ cheek around my incoming wisdom teeth are swollen and red. It hurts too bad to even eat. The pain is more prevalent around my wisdom teeth than my throat. Help?

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding sore throat secondary to wisdom tooth erruption. It has been diagnosed as streptococcal pharyngitis.

As you said that your tonsils, gums, tongue and cheek around the errupting tooth is swollen and red and is extreamly painful. To treat it you should take-

(a) Antibiotic - it is to be decided according to culture and sensitivity report.

(b) Anti inflammatory and analgesic.

(c) Antiseptic mouth wash.

If you are diabetic than that should also be consider in medicine shedule.

I hope this will help you.
