Did the doctor do a throat culture to see if you have a strep infection in your throat? You have to give the Amoxicillin at least 48 hours to work. You should feel a little better within 24 hours, though. You must try to keep your fever down below 102. Take tylenol, motrin or aspirin (whichever one you have been taking). Drink plenty of fluids so you stay hydrated, and please rest. Call the doctor to find out the results of your blood tests. Drink warm tea or you can suck on ice to soothe your throat, whichever works best. Use throat lozenges as well.
