Patient :I've had a staph infection in my throat for the last several weeks. I have also been on 2 different medications, azithromycin and clindamycin. I'm currently on my last day of clindamycin but I'm still seeing bacterial patches in my throat. They have shrunk but are still clearly visible. Should I return to the doctor or will it continue to clear up on its own?
