Sickness question..

I was diagnosed with ear infections on Friday and started antibiotics (augmenton). Shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I am feeling so much worse. I have a call in to the doctor but I am thinking this is not just a simple infection. I woke up with a cough and my kids are coughing too. (No fevers)

  • since everyone else is coughing now too i would assume its not an ear infection, probably more of a cold. its probably not any type of infection if antibiotics aren't working at all

  • I would call the doc seeing your kids are sick too and you aren't getting any better. Hope you all feel better soon.

  • I agree sounds like a virus more. Did the doctor see the infection in your ears when you were diagnosed ?
    I have often had "ear pain" like an infection before getting a sinus issue/cold and I try to clear it up with sudafed and motrin. It's from the pressure.

  • Yes, she said they both were infected, red, and fluid filled.
