My uvula has randomly been swelling and having irritations, often to the point that my uvula rests in my tongue. Now my throat burns, aches, is dry and itchy. Yet I have no tonsils or lymphoids and have been diagnosed with strept throat in the past. Could I have been a carrier? I'm allergic to pennicillan and amoxicillin and it states that a 10 day course of these medicines are required. Thought it does not change the time requirement if you are prescribed AZITHROMYCIN, yet I'm given just a 5 day prescription requirement. Should I been prescribed a 10 prescription?
