Pregnant. Have tonsillitis. Have cough, cold, swollen tonsils, painful, earache, shivers, sweats. Help?
Hi Dr Bhatti, I think I have tonsillitis, I'm prone to coughs & colds being a primary school teacher but this is a lot worse, very swollen & lumpy tonsils almost touching, yellow spots, very sore to swallow as well as some earache, shivers & sweats. Going on for 2 days. I'm 6 wks pregnant should I see my dr tomo? I saw him on Fri re the pregnancy, when throat was just sore nothing too bad, he said a little paracetamol. But it has got a lot worse. Thank you
Hi Dear Welcome to the board of Health care magic, I thing one should go for throat swab culture and according to the culture report one should start relevant antibiotic considering your pregnancy. Hope your query is answered Thanks
