Patient :I was diagnosed with acute tonsillitis on Tuesday and started taking antibiotics (amoxicillin) Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. The doctor said I would feel better after 3 days (which I know hasn't passed yet), by my symptoms appear to be getting worse. The white puss on the back of my throat is becoming more visible and I have an ear ache that did not exist before. Is this normal or is this a sign that the antibiotics are not working?
