Hello?

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

You may definitely need an antibiotic in view of the whitish lesions in the back of your throat and severe pain. So, you should go to your doctor for a diagnosis and antibiotic. Till then gargling with salt water will help.

Take care.

Did I answer your question? Please reply.

Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
