clairebell yes if the amoxicillin wasn't effective and you were written for the penicillin go ahead and stop the amoxicillin and start the pen. do plenty of warm salt water rinses/gargles this will help dry up the infection and make it feel better. also a cool compress to your face helps. hope this helps

clairbell they will start absorbing in your system within 30 minutes of taking them, but you may not see an improvement for 2 days, but because you were already on amoxicillin you may see improvement quicker. do the salt water rinses I cant tell you how much this will help. do it several times a day if you need to, good luck

The general rule for antibiotics is, if they are working, you shouldn't see any worsening after being on them for a full 24 hours and you should start to see improvement after taking them for a full 3 days.

The FDA lists the typical side effects for antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

I hope it clears up soon, Clairbelle! Is there anything else I can help with?
