seriously this is getting old. i was diagnosed with strep throat on tuesday. yesterday, i could finally handle eating and swallowing with little to no pain. i thought i was finally better. im on zithromax, because im allergic to anything in the "cillin" family, which sucks because i know those are very potent and usually knock the infection right out. but unfortunately i cant take them because i break out in a horrible rash. anyway, this morning i have a horrid earache in my right ear, and only when i swallow. the right tonsil was giving me the most pain when the strep was at it's worst, so im thinking the infection may have traveled a bit into my ear.
what should i do? im already on antibiotics. is this something that will likely clear up in a day, as i still have two more days of antibiotics left? or will i need to go back and get something more powerful? this sucks :(
