Sore Throat for two months

Hi,
Been reading this board for a week now. I see there is a lot of people on here with a wealth of info. So Im hoping someone can help me.

In December, I had conjestion, coughing, sore throat. It lasted a few days. Everything went away except the sore throat. ( Redness, white patches in the throat, and blister like things in the back of my throat) eww! However, it doesnt hurt.
I went to see my doctor and he gave me augmenten. This didnt help it.
I went back and he gave me prednizone and did a throat culture.He called me back said it was nothing serious, it was viral and no further mediciation is needed.
It has been two months now and its still infected. So my questions are
1. Does anyone know any over the counter mediciation that may help?
2. Has anyone had a sore throat for this long, and did it eventually go away?
3. Should I go to another doctor and get a second opinion?

Thanks in advance for any advice and information.

Re: Sore Throat for two months

Ikb,
If there's been no change, I would call this doctor back and tell him 2 months is too long. If you have lost faith in him, then definitely see anoither physician.

I once has an ear/nose/throat doc culture my VERY clogged sinuses (filled with green purulent mucous) and he told me the culture showed "no infection".

Needless to say, he was wrong!

I like Ricola throat drops.

I've had a nagging sore throat that was caused by excess dust in the room that I slept in. I had done a lot of shredding and not emptied out the bin or vacuumed up the dust.

If you can't pinpoint what is causing it...then yes. Having a sore throat can impede your breathing and make it more difficult to get your food down.
