Thanks for writing to H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding severe sore throat and fever. You have also loss of voice and you are having enlarged and tender nodes on neck. Though you have taken antibiotics but still you didn't feel any improvement. Your bood report is awaited.

I feel that you should checked yourself for -

(a) F.N.A.C. of your neck lymph node to know about pathology.

(b) Culture and sensitivity of throat swab.

Till your reports are awaited you continue the same medicines you are taking, and after word it may be changed.
