    Yes. Sounds like you have got it bad, especially bloody phlegm. Some doctors have a problem tailoring an antibiotic to suit the patient's needs and often prescribe one that is not strong enough. I would go back to your doctor and tell him the antibiotic is not working. It is important that you get rid of the infection in your body.

    How long has this been going on? You don't say if you have actually been to a doctor. If you can, get him to examine your throat as you may have a slight abrasion (scratch) on the lining

    Sounds like strep throat or scarlet fever. Best see a doctor and have a strep test done. They can prescribe the appropriate antibiotic for you. Don't let this go on as strep throat if left untreated can and will cause serious heart problems that are irreversible. Take it easy and don't overdo anything physical until you are fully recovered as you will definitely have a relapse of this condition.

    It is probably viral. Antibiotics are ineffective in this instance unless there is a secondary infection.Paracetamol,plenty of fluids and rest are the only treatment for you. If your symptoms worsen,see your Doctor.
