The course was for the same throat infection - forgot to mention that, or it doesn't make a lot of sense! Lol

and I agree with you, this medicine wont help cause I was already treated with antibiotics. Linda 

There are different types/strengths of antibiotics that vary tremendously asto how they react to what. I took a course in July and it didn't help. Have just taken the same course and the results were positive........!
My daughter keeps getting bouts of tonsillitis, at least twice a year. Her symptoms are swollen tonsils, not the same size, white spots which has been mistaken for thrush, or stones by an ENT. All cleared up with antibiotics. On and off for about 6/7 years now - I was getting concerned. Having decided not to have them removed, she is changing her mind, as I was diagnosed with tonsil cancer in January 2013' the symptoms completely different may I add. I have urged her to go and seek advice from a different ENT. It will always play on her mind if she doesn't get them checked out and/or removed. To close for my liking anyway, even though there is no other cancer in our family, and she doesn't drink or smoke, like I 'did'! She's sensible, and got an appointment in a week's time. I'm obviously really hoping it is just tonsillitis and she decides to have them out anyway, but also, to warn some people that googling and the like can lead you unnecessarily up the garden path eg. May not be cancer, even though not good,just not cancer. Best of luck!
