Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

Your problems are related to smoking and not the oral sex. Smoking damages the mucosa of the throat thus inviting the micro-organisms to feast on.

My suggestions to you is to stop smoking first, drink plenty of warm water, use povidone iodine throat gargles and continue with the antibiotics; you will definitely feel better.

I wish you good health
