Entire right side of my face is infected/sore, What should I do ?

I had a tooth abscess 2 weeks on the right side and an ear infection (right side) at the same time. A week ago, I caught a terrible cold which was worse in the right side of my face - right tonsil, right nostril (either blocked or very runny). I'm on penicillin now and have developed further ear pain on the right side and a headache (today) and conjuntivitis in my right eye. My doctor is unaware of the headache and conjunctivitis. What should I do? Is further investigation necessary?

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
we will presume that your treating doctor is well aware of the whole picture other than the conjunctivitis part..This can be controlled by local drops .You would already be under cover of oral antibiotics.

Definitely yes, further investigations are required..go visist your doctor, let him examine you after the new complaints have started and give you alternate or added prescriptions that you require.
