Hi,

It looks like bacterial throat infection or strep throat. If infection is severe it can take a little longer to get better. You can continue taking Azithromycin for another 3 days. Along with it, you can take any anti-inflammatory painkiller like Ibuprofen for reducing pain and inflammation. Do warm salt water gargles 2-3 times a day to soothe the throat. Take throat lozenges. Drink more of warm liquids and take soft and bland diet. But if there is no Improvement in 3 days, better get checked by a doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Honey Arora, Dentist
