Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The infection may take sometime for complete treatment. You should continue with same dose. Along with this take tablet vitamin c once daily and use hexidine gargles 4 to 5 times a day.

It would be better if you can send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better and prescribe you accordingly.

Any further questions are always welcome.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks and regards
