I had strep at the beginning of the month. I took zithromax 500mg for 5 days. I read that some strains of strep are resistant to zithromax. I have a penicillin allergy so that is why zithromax.was prescribed.
So my throat took over a week to clear up. I thought I had kicked it.
The last few days I have swollen red tonsils with exudate on them, throat and what I think.is refered ear pain but no fever. I feel run down but not super sick like I did.
Should I do back to the doc for a throat culture or just ride this out and only go in if I get a fever?
