Tonsillitis.. - April 28th 2010, 08:30 AM

Okay so I had a really bad sore throat so I went to the doctors and got some anti-biotics because I've got Tonsillitis.. Everything was okay before but since i've started taking this anti-biotics every morning my mouth is dry and crispy, even my tongue has a crispy layer over it.. it's disgusting!
Anyone know if it's related or how to get rid of it? [I have been drinking a lot of water]

Oh and, I can't eat anything, everything tastes funny because i've got a fluffy tongue.. all I can drink is water and fruit and barley fruit juice, is there any foods that will still taste the same?

Hey there Alicja,

It's good that you've been taking your anti-biotics but it seems as though they're having quite an unwanted side-effect. As this has only started occuring after you've been taking anti-biotics, it's likely that it is related. I think that making sure you're drinking a lot of water is a good idea. Perhaps you could talk to your doctor about this problem or even your pharmacist as there may be something like an oral gel that they could prescribe you which could help.

Take care!
