Best go to the doctor, get a throat swab, then let your doctor prescribed the best antibiotic (they are not for a sore throat) for you..

depends on what is causing the sore throat, different antibiotics act best against different bacteria and if the sore throat is caused by a virus or post nasal drip an antibiotic won’t do anything at all. You need to see a Dr so they can determine which one to to use. Never take antibiotics without medical supervision and instruction you risk creating “super bugs” if you do that.
Only about 5%-10% of sore throats are caused by a bacterial infection. Most sore throats are caused by a virus and are not responsive to treatment with antibiotics.
Normally, doctors will not give an antibiotic for a sore throat…..there has to be infection of some sort w/a temp to get that.
Go to the dr. The wrong one can kill someone with an allergy. Just a sore throat won’t get any better with one anyway.
Amoxicillin is often given for strep throat. This drug is part of the Penicillin family. If you are allergic to Penicillin, other antibiotics will be given, such as Clindomycin or Azithromycin.
Keep in mind that the majority of sore throats are caused by viruses. Therefore, no antibiotics will be prescribed.
Or try calling a pharmacist.
