I was diagnosed with strep throat and given antibiotics, 3

I was diagnosed with strep throat and given antibiotics, 3 days after finishing them it came back worse. I was then diagnosed with a virus- and given stronger antibiotics, it's been 3 days since I finished them and it's coming back again- worse. But this time it's not just in my tonsils. It's sharp pain radiating from my tonsils, down my neck, to a spot underneath my collar bone. It hurts to speak, eat, drink and it hurts to breathe deeply. My throat has white splotches and red bumps- just like before with the "strep" & "virus". I've also been coughing up bright red blood that started with lots of puss but now is less puss more blood. Please help.

I have recently been diagnosed with strep throat and I am on antibiotics and getting better. However I just had my first BM in several days and there was a deep green mucus in my stool unlike anything i have ever seen before. Should I be worried? Could the infection in my throat spread to other parts of my body?
