throat has white patches on it and yellow toung

A week ago (sat night )my thorat felt funny kind of like a pop rock was in it fizzing. I look in merror and i see 2 dots on the back of my throat and 2 white patches on the roof of my mouth. It didn't worry me that much. Then on tuesday i looked in my mouth and my throat and roof of my mouth have white patches all over and the top of my toung was coverd in yellow stuff.

I went to the doc on wed and he did a strep throat test and it came back nigative. He said something about it being a vires and a bacteria that settled in my throat and if if not takin care of it can turn into strep cause its usually a 50/50 chance of turning into strep and im now taking 4 teaspoons of penicillin in the morning and at night.

I only took 2 doses of the medicen so far cause i just got the prescription yesterday.

I have no pain in my throat but a couple times i woke up and my throat was sore but it went away with in like a half hour. My throat feels like somthing is on my hangy ball or poking my attoms apple and i have to keep drinking watter cause of the anoying feeling.

so am i screwd or is it all going to get better?

5star,

If it is thrush as you believe, then you will most likely need an anti-fungal medication. For thrush typically is a fungal infection identifier. In any case if you have not seen a dramatic improvement after 48 hours of anti-biotics, you should return to your doctor.

I started pinnicilin but pinicelin is for bacteria. I dont know if pinnicelin would help. I checked to day and the white spots look like it may have lost some white but not sure.
I checked my toung and before teh whole top of teh toung was coverd in yellow except about 1 inch in front. Well i look today and it looks like its spreading cause i got a couple light spots on that 1 inch that had none before. What meds should i be using and how am i dignost?

What else could it be?

5star,

As I said before, go back to your doctor. As for a diagnosis get the doctor to do a culture. A culture is the only way to determine a fungal infection. The doctor would have to prescribe you the correct medicine.
