Stuffy nose, diarrhea, tonsillitis

Answered by: Dr Ramzdhan

Hi, I’m 24year old (male).
On 16/3/2020, my colleague cough beside me and both of us didnt wear mask. After few days, I feel my nose blocked and my throat didnt feel well. Eg: The nose always blocked one side, and another side is breathable, when I lie down at right side, the upside nose breathable and the down side nose blocked. No runny nose occur but I feel like the snot going down to my throat. Moreover, my throat didnt feel well but I still able to talk and eat. The symptoms seems like not serious but make me feel uncomfortable. During this period, I did diarrhea almost everyday(1 time per day).
On 25/4/2020, I found out my tonsil got a white dot, and it seem like tonsillitis(after google).and all the symptoms I mentioned on top didnt reduce and increase.
Until today, I didnt cough, sneeze and fever.
Should I take antibiotic? If yes,what kind of antibiotic should I buy.
Thank you.
