      The only safe antibiotics (that is, most probably non-ototoxic) are the "Cefuroxime" class of drugs.
      2nd class antibiotics, semi synthetic cephalosporins which will most probably what you want.
      That, or fight it on your own but do speak to a doc.

      amoxicillin is the most commonly prescribed anti-biotic for strep and is not oto-toxic.

      A Group-B Streptococcus has the potential to take your kidneys out. Treat it, if its really a confirmed or strongly suspected bacterial "strep" throat.

      See your doctor!! Worry about the Tinnitus increase later IF it foes get worse. Even then, after you have done the treatment with antibiotics, and they have flushed from your system, any increase could drop again. Antibiotics also kill all the good bacteria in your digestive system so it may be wise to supplement with probiotics after the treatment to help quickly increase the good healthy bacteria we need to digest food properly. You can find decent probiotics at most drug stores and the more strains of the good bacteria they have, the better. I personally use a probiotic daily, capsule, that has 10 strains of good bacteria.

      Good luck with the strep and make sure you get that under control at any cost.
