Strep throat getting worse now very sore chest and high temp - very worried
I took my husband to the doctor yesterday morning because he had a very sore throat. The doctor said he had strep throat and his trachea was infected - he gave him Amoxil. He didn't have a temperature. He now feels very hot and says he is feeling much worse. I am getting concerned. What should I do?

Debs, it sounds like the doctor didn’t give him a strong enough antibiotic. If it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this reply the best would be for him to see his doctor again. Good luck.
