My son is 17 yrs old, and shows all the signs for strep. Sore throat, redness, and white patches, temperature of 101.6 under arm with ibeprophen, very weak. Want to know if the above antiobiotic, will work for strep?
Could be mono
He needs to see a dr to be sure he has strep. Don't try to treat him yourself. You would not have enough med to give him the full course anyway.
You should take him to the Dr but to answer your question yes amoxicillin is the most commonly prescribed antibiotic for strep throat as well as ear and sinus infections
