Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Rash around the throat may be due to viral Fever with rash or herpes zoster or mums or chickenpox or heat rash or hives or infectious mononucleosis etc. Avoid cool drinks and freeze water, avoid smoking and caffeine drinks. Use water vapor inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use tablet Amoxiclav twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your ENT specialist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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

I ve been on a 10 day regime of Amoxicillin (2xday) for 6 days now. It seemed to clear up the sinus infection pretty good but then since yesterday I ve had a terribly sore throat and now a rash all over my neck. I m still taking the Amoxicillin but am wondering what the heck is going on now? is it a weird reaction to the medicine (which I have never had an issue with before)? Or, do I have something different now that the Amox won t handle?

Yesterday I woke up with what I thought was a simple sore throat. Later in the day I experience pain whenever I breathe, swallow and yawn. The pain is inside my throat around the mid and lower areas. The sides and back of my neck experience no pain, just the front. Whats wrong and what should I do?
