The doctor has told you that if antibiotics don't help, than it's probably cancer? You haven got your tonsils taken out, or you have? Because I have been having throat infections over and over for like every two-three months for over a year now and antibiotics do take the worst part of it, but it always comes back because the bacteria that is causing the infection has gotten stuck in the tonsil tissue. But tonsils - to state the obvious again - can be removed completely. How old are you? Do you smoke?

Now I saw the part I completely skipped the last time - they gave you pills for allergy two times. And swelling of the throat definitely is one of the most common signs of allergy, usually the ones to some kinds of food (walnuts, for example). IS it the dry cough or is there a mucus?

First thought was if it wasn't still strep then allergies. That happened to me I never had allergies b4 just developed them in later age. What about (just saying) an std? I hope it's not cancer:(
