Patient :I came down with a head cold over 2 weeks ago and a week later I saw a minute clinic physician as my symptoms had seemed to improve and then worsen again. I was treated for a sinus infection and given amoxicillin which seemed to help for a couple days but again symptoms seem to be worsening! I experienced a mild fever 2 days ago and yesterday accompanied by a mild sore throat and headache and today the sore throat persists worse the past 2 days with a bad sinus headache. Is this a virus that I just need to continue to ride out or should I try and seek more amoxicillin? My dose is going to expire in a couple of days and still feeling this bad I am still concerned It will not be enough.
