My doctor prescribed me Prednisone to help my chronic strep throat.
Patient : I have had strep throat for four months. I was put on an antibiotic two months ago but the symptoms only briefly subsided. A ENT doctor prescribed me a short course of Prednisone before deciding if we should have my tonsils removed. If Prednisone helps me now, do you still recommend I get my tonsils removed, as I am sick often despite a healthy lifestyle.
