Recurrent throat infection

​I do suffer quite often from throat infection; as often as once or twice in a month. Every time, it clears up after a short antibiotics course of azithromycin, except this time. I already had azithromycin 500 three days course, and still it didn’t clear up. I do gargling with salted water and also drink warm water when my throat is infected before going for antibiotics, but this doesn’t give long term effect and I have to take antibiotics to get relief. Anyone in the boat? What could be possible reason? Could it be allergy or drinking water problem? Shall I go deep and insist for further checking? Please advice or suggest how I can minimize these kind of infection.

    Tonsils?? I had the same thing for 2 years and my tonsils were normal size. I was just getting strapped until 2 months ago I decided to see ENT. He told me tonsils don't have to be large to cause problems. I got rid of them just 3 weeks ago and yes he was right. I had chronic inflammation + tonsillitis... Also some sort of bacteria that I still have to figure out what it is.

      as far as i know antibiotics go into the blood stream via the stomach

      Yea its true... The way tonsils are and how they trap bacteria is crazy... I was on antibiotic for 3 months streight and nothing helped. I think I tried every kind out there and it just didn't do anything. I even tried oregano oil but again nothing.

    Thank you guys for replies. I have never thought of tonsil as this could be possible cause. I never have any classical symptoms of tonsillitis like swelling or high temperature. But I do have lot of voice change every time I have sore throat. Nevertheless, I will discuss this possibility in my next appointment with GP. Thanks for giving food for thought.
