I was diagnosed with strep throat on Monday, December 12. The doctor prescribed penicillin and by Wednesday I was feeling a lot better and by Thursday the sore throat was gone. Last night before bed my throat started hurting again and this morning I woke up in terrible pain and feeling even worse than I did on Monday. I went to the clinic and they said that the swab was highly positive for strep. So now they've put me on cefprozil which they said should knock it but may not. If not I'm not sure what the next step is. Has anyone here ever had a strep infection that doesn't respond to antibiotics? I feel horribly ill and Christmas is in one week!
