Welcome to HCM.
Repeated sore throat and fever either indicates low immunity or improper or inadequate treatment.
Please do not try self medicating at home especially with antibiotic prescriptions. Get a throat swab culture and sensitivity done and then let your doctor decide which antibiotics he wants to prescribe based on the test results.
Please complete the full course of antibiotics prescribed.
As you are prone to getting throat infections, you should be very careful what you are eating and drinking.
Avoid oily, fatty food, stored food and cold drinks. I would also suggest a healthy, balanced diet to boost your immune system.
