You must have developed resistance for Amoxycillin, the antibiotic has to be changed. Secondly, the white patches over the tonsils is due to collection of food materials in the crypts of the tonsils with micro abscess. Drink plenty of warm water, do gargles with betadine mouth gargles (3-4times/day) after food.
