Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. Well, it does sound like a bad react ion to the drug, but you never reacted like this before to Augmentin, so it is difficult to explain. However, you should take Tab. Claritin 10 mg once daily for 3 days, for relief. Hope this was helpful, Regards
