This is Dr. David
I would follow your doctor's advice.
and finish off the azithromycin antibiotic
and take a probiotic to prevent diarrhea
and take the prednisone with food in your stomach to help decrease the inflammation
if after the azithromycin course of therapy, you still have sore throat, you need a repeat throat culture at that point to see if you still have strep throat
but I bet the antibiotic will help clear out the infection
sometimes infections can get worse before they get better.
you can also gargle regularly with salt water as well
let me know if you have other questions.
