Brief Answer:
Take amoxicillin and Tylenol!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed the attached image. This is suggestive of a bacterial infection with false membranes and pit son the tonsil glands. I will recommend that you take amoxicillin: 100mg twice daily for 6days and Tylenol: 1000mg thrice daily for pain and fever. In addition, drink and eat well.

Antibiotics cannot be obtained online. You will therefore need to request for a script from your doctor to be served at the pharmacy.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow through is need be. Above all, keep me updated with your response to treatment.
