Good Day - I am experiencing fairly severe throat pain.

Good Day -
I am experiencing fairly severe throat pain. I went to Providence Immediate Care Friday morning. They diagnosed Peritonsillar cellulitis, Sore Throat, Pharyngitis, unspecified etiology. They gave me a shot of Decadron, and prescribed Amoxicillan and Pain releiver. I'm still in a great deal of pain and had hoped to see improvement by now. I have taken 5 doses of the antibiotic over 50 + hours with no significant relief. I'm concerned that there may be something else going on. How long should I wait before going back to the doctor for further evaluation?

Hello, I am having some fairly severe throat pain when I swallow with fairly swollen tonsils and painful lymph nodes on the neck. This has been going on for about 3 days with the painful swallowing, and the swollen tonsils have been going on for nearly 2 weeks. I visited a Dr. and they ruled out strep throat, but the pain has increased substantially over the last couple of days. I would like to know if/when I should visit the Dr. again or if a trip to the ER is needed, as the pain tonight is getting pretty severe.
