hello there.
may be the first line antibiotics given has not worked. reason for this could be that the bacteria which has caused this is resistant to that particular antibiotic.
get a throat swab test done. and consult a ENT surgeon.
do gargles using a povidone idodine gargle solution thrice a day.
