Patient :Hi I was given antibiotics yesterday by a doctor for strep but he said it didnt look that bad and told me to wait 24 hours. The pain is still there and my right side of the neck is also swollen, i feel the pain a lot more in the morning when I wake up. I also still have body pain and feel weak. Should I take the antibiotic or wait more?
