Dear Friend.
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
You might be suffering from Acute Strep Sore throat.
Also chances of viral infection like EBV, Infectious Mononucleosis are there.
Zithromax is not going to help you in this.
I advise you following:
1. Hemogram with ESR
2. Antibiotic like Augmentin
3. Paracetamol for fever
4. Anti allergic like Levocetrzine

This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
