Hello, I’m Grace, 23 years old.
Since Wednesday last week I have had tonsillitis. and the next Thursday I went to the General Practitioner, he had prescribed a medicine that is; AKILENTABLET200MG; Ofloxacin and the other capsule drugs are green and yellow. It has been almost a week but my tonsils have not healed well, in fact the last 3 days I have a fever starting at 8 pm, and now it is more difficult to swallow, tonsils are also increasingly swollen and white patches appear. Please hint.
