Hi I am a 44 year old male and having a firstterrible case of acute tonsillitis. I got a sore throat about 2.5 weeks ago and after 4 days it felt like a piece of jagged glass shard in the throat. I was traveling so I couldn't get to a doctor immediately. I got fever and chills which I controlled with paracetamol. Gargling didn't help much. As soon I reached home I went to a general physician who said I had pus in my tonsils and misdiagnosed it as "quinsy", peritonsular abscess, the ENT next day put me on a regime of oral antibiotics but to no avail for 4 days. He asked me to get on to IV antibiotics which he gave for 2 days that helped about 25%. He put me back on 5 more days of antibiotics. I stopped them at home as they were making me feel worse, sick and tired. I am trying all the home remedies but not much help. I am tired confused and exasperated. My tonsils have white pus lines, throat feels raw and inflamed. please share experiences, how long does it take??
