Swollen, painful throat, aches, fever, took medicines, had pus filled bumps at the back of throat, hacking cough. Normal?

Hi I went to the doc on Tuesday with a painful swollen shut throat and aches chills and fever . The doc gave me 2 antibiotics that kind of don t seem to be helping a whole lot. It s been 5 days and I ve taken a look in my throat to see there are bumps in the back of my throat with puss in them. Is that normal to develop spontaneously throughout having the flu? I also have begun to develop a hacking cough . Fevers have seemed to mellow out a bit as with aches and chills.

hi , it seems that thrat infection still persists, as you have written your doctor has advised you antibiotics along with other medicines. it is advised to visit him again because he can compare the present situation of throat as he has examined you earlier. it is advised ,,till the time you see your ENT specalist,continue with medicines.
