Doc put me on amoxicillin but the pain is unbearable especially when swallowing! Lozenges useless, same as spray products. I wish there was something I could spray down there to numb everything up till this thing clears. I also hate how these anti bio's effect me. Not since I was a kid in the early 70's do I remember a bug to cause this much duress. Back then it was penicillin. Is strep that much nastier than before or is it me ? Is it strep?
