sore throat won't go away-on antibiotics!

My daughter has had a sore throat for almost 2 weeks! She had gotten strep throat and was treated for it about a month ago. But, doc told her to stop the meds after a week cause she was getting uncontrollable diarrhea. He didn't put her on anything else because he did another swab and it was negative. Now the sore throat has come back with a vengeance. Different doc gave her bactrim, she was on it 3 days and had an allergy to it so they changed her to keflex. She has been on it 5 days now and no improvement. Her throat is red swollen and horribly sore. She has painfully swollen glands in the neck. Docs have her on steroids, benadryl, keflex, and vicoden for pain. She is not getting better, and i am starting to get worried! Also, it's not mono, they checked! Anyone have any ideas as to what this could be? Any replys are greatly appreciated!

Re: sore throat won't go away-on antibiotics!

I would ask them to take a throat culture that can determine what antibiotic would be best to use depending on what type of bacteria they find causing the sore throat...She maybe reinfecting herself, use paper cups, plates, utensils for a while for her. Disinfect her tooth brush after each use.. Have her gargle twice a day with Listerine mouth wash..
