Hello,

As you have episodes of pharyngitis at frequent intervals, I'll suggest please get a throat swab culture and sensitivity done. There must be a gap of 4-5 days between last antibiotic and the culture sensitivity test. Just give a call to a path lab and they will explain you the procedure. If your test is positive then you will get the name of the most effective antibiotic and that will have to be taken as as per the advice of your doctor. In the meantime please try to do warm saline gargle as many times a day as possible. Avoid spicy food and cold water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Prabhash Verma, General & Family Physician
