Well this round of tonsilitis has lead to two different antibiotics. The first one wasn't working so they started me on Bactrim only for me to discover 2 days later that I am allergic to Bactrim. So now I have a lovely swollen left side of my face and mouth (with sores in my mouth too) and get to take steroids and benadryl to try and get rid of this. Plus I still have the sore throat that I originally started with!!! I must have really ticked my tonsils off this time lol.

 Thanks,  I've noticed a big change so far in just the couple hours since I took the first dose of steroids.  My mouth feels soooo much better, but the left side of my face is still really swollen.  Luckily that part isn't really causing much pain.  They said by tomorrow I should be able to tell a huge difference, so hopefully I do!

Nope she took me off all antibiotics so now I just have to suffer and hope it goes away within the next week or two.  She said the steriods and benadryl should help some with my throat too.

 Thanks!  Nope it hasn't, hopefully this is the last of it for a long time though!  I'm more than ready to be over this.

 How are you feeling today??

 The swelling in my face is down a lot so that part is nice, but my mouth is back to hurting quite a bit so I'm hoping that goes away again soon.  My throat is feeling a little better so hopefully this all means I'm on the upward swing of things!
