Im on last day of zpack, still have pain on left side of throat and ear along with white patches . Obviously its sat and dr is not in.

Your sore throat seems to be lingering longer than usual. I hope you have taken your antibiotics regularly. It can easily be taken for 5 to 7 days. If symptoms continue despite that you may have a change of antibiotics and take augmentin625 three times a day. Beside this take a tablet of sinarest 2 to 3 times a day which will take care of the pain and sore throat. I hope your asthma is under control and continue what ever treatment you are taking for it.
