Patient : I have a very swollen tonsil and then a slightly swollen other tonsil. I was tested for Mono and given a throat culture everything came back negative. I then went to a throat doctor who prescribed Augmentin twice a day for ten days and two days worth of steroid to try and get the swelling down. The steroid did nothing and I am almost done choking down the 10 days worth of Augmentin and there has been zero change. I have never had a problem with my tonsils in the past and am wondering now what the doctors next step would probably be. I have another appointment but I'm at school so its not for another week and a half.
