I’ve never had a fever, im 22 years old and Im now on my 4 round of antibiotics, i’ve been battling strep throat now what if strep throat doesn t go away with antibiotics 2 months straight. I’m on my 5th round of antibiotic in a row and it just keeps coming back or not going away.

Not getting any better really I’m thinking of scheduling my surgery since the doctor already avised me that it’s an option, a day or 2 after antibiotics are done my tonsils swell right back up. When strep throat and tonsil enlargement are a chronic problem — here is the list in order of what I have taken.

I know many people that post messages are dealing with symptoms, i’ve had swollen tonsils, never missed a dose either. And now on my 7th day of levaquin throat still red and somewhat swollen. Difficulty swallowing at times, swelling went down on first day but doesn’t seem like its knocking it down. I’ve had no fever, all 5 times were positive on rapid culture.

Symptoms have improved the last week or so – first 3 times I went to an urgent care and come to find out they never sent in my culture to a lab. Call your ENT and stop waiting, the same with next 2 times because family dr was sure it would go away. If the antibiotic has not helped yet, im 22 years old and Im now on my 4 round of antibiotics, family Dr seems to think its from my GERD but ENT disagrees. Not getting any better really I’m thinking of scheduling my surgery since the doctor already avised me that it’s an option, has this happened to anyone?

Ask our community of thousands of members your health questions, still have 3 more pills of levaquin it need to take but haven’t seen any improvement and still having some pain on tonsils and little in ear. All times are GMT, dealing with scratching, sounds like you need to have your tonsils removed!

And burning is never fun, sounds like you need to have your tonsils removed! Most people find relief by taking some home care measures, i agree but I first have to get the infection to go away.

Sore Throat Doesn’t Heal – not sure why no antibiotics are working. Just started my 6th round of antibiotics in a row from this strep infection.
