I was misdiagnosed with strep throat on Tuesday and i went back to the doctor on Thursday and was told I had coxsackie. I had been taking amoxicillin for 48 hours because of the original diagnose of strep. But since it turns out i have coxsackie virus should i stop the antibiotics?

I was diagnosed with strep throat less than a month ago and was on penicillin for 14 days. I never had a rapid strep test done. Last night the left side of my throat began to get scratchy/sore and I notice it once again is red and there are white/light yellow pustules (less than a couple weeks ago, but still there). Could I have been misdiagnosed as having strep and it really could be tonsil cancer? I have been tired and having slight left ear pain since all of this has been going on also.

I have a strep throat and went to the doctor on Tuesday and I received the pencillin 500mg and so far I am still in pain from swelling and it feels worse than before..and the doctor said I need to finish the whole bottle (1 daily twice in a day) it is only the 3rd day...I still have up until Thursday...when do I start feeling any results?

yes. I was diagnosed at a clinic saturday with strep -- coughing, etc. They did a swabing of my throat for the diagnoses. They put me on Amox-claw 2x/day for 10 days. I am not that much better. Checking the computer it says this is for urinary tract infection (which I do NOT have). Have I been misdiagnosed?
