Suffering with consistent throat inflammation, tonsil swab showed enterobacter cloacae. Could this be the cause of recurrence?

Hi, I have been suffering from throat inflammation for about 3 months now. Since october i had sore tonsiles with pus 5 times. I ve treated it with amoxyilinum but lately i had tonsil swab done and it turned out that i have bacteria called: enterobacter cloacae . Could this bacteria be the reason for my tonsiles problems? The doctor didn t prescribe me any antibiotic for this, only for candida albicans . I take also vaccine Ismigen to bild up immunity and doctor said to come when i have finished this vaccine. But it will be for 2 months and what about that bacteria in my throat? I feel it starts aching again.

There are many bacteria in mouth. as it is open to the enviornment and is unsterile.
If your doctor has said no need for antibiotics now then do not worry he must have examined you.
Complete your vaccination course first.
You can take Betadine or hexidene gargles for maintaining cleanliness for mouth and so there will not be any infection and bacterial growth.
