I've had a sore throat (not scratchy) for over a week and a sore right ear with difficulty swallowing. My doctor prescribed a z-pack and amoxicillian as if it were strep throat. I've been taking both for two days with no relief. I have no fever, but have congestion and cough. I'm concerned these aren't the right meds. I'm wondering what my symptoms might suggest outside of strep throat.
