Strep, how much longer?!
I've had symptoms for 12 days, I've read it isnt supposed to last that long. I first noticed symptoms July 19th, chills and body ache. It wasn't til that following weekend that I looked in my mouth and saw swollen tonsils and red bumps on the back of my throat. Last Monday July 26th, I went to the doctor who prescribed me Keflex. I took it for 4 days and quit taking it yesterday because of the side effects. It makes me violently ill, causes my urine to be brown and my tonsils actually look worse than they did before I started taking it. Now my tonsils are covered in white spots. My question is how long can this continue without taking any medication? It'll be 2 weeks Monday. I was debating going back to the doctor and seeing if they'd prescribe me something else but that might just be a waste of money.
