I was diagnosed with strep throat three days ago. I didn't have any symptoms, including NO SORE THROAT, except when I looked at my tonsils they were slightly enlarged and had plenty of pus pockets. I have been on Penicillin for 3 days now, and I don't see a difference in my tonsils, this worries me because it's not like I would know if I'm responding to the medication or not since my only symptom is from the way my tonsils look. I just noticed that I had this long flat pus looking thing, that is now being surrounded by blood. Is that normal? Or should I be worried? I'm also getting really bad body aches when I wake up, to the point where I wake up in the middle of the night from them, I don't know if that has anything to do with strep though?
