Is Amoxicillin Effective At Treating Strep Throat?
can take a few days
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
The antibiotic would not start having an effect till day 2 in most cases, at that time, the effect would still be minimal but would continue to improve.
The swelling is part of the body's inflammatory response to the infection
You may want to consider the use of anti inflammatory medication such as naproxen, cataflam or ibuprofen. One of these should be able to reduce your discomfort
The use of topical meds such as chloroseptic spray or gargle or covonia throat spray or diflam or soluble aspirin , may also help as well
I hope this helps , feel free to ask any other questions
