1. The purpose of giving Augmentin is to recover from the infection that occurred in your throat. Augmentin contains a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium. Amoxicillin fights bacteria in the body.Clavulanate potassium is a form of clavulanic acid, which is similar to penicillin. Clavulanate potassium fights bacteria that is often resistant to penicillins and other antibiotics.

2. Chymoral forte is natural anti- inflamatory. It reduces the viscocity of mucos and sputum in cases of infection in throat. The proteolytic enzymes in Chymoral Forte also help to increase the concentration of antibiotics at an infection site, thereby reducing instances of infection and speeding up healing from infection.

3. The oral drugs starts its effects in 12-24hrs so you start getting relief in 12-24hrs mean while your temp and pain are reliefed by other drugs which you are using.

4. You should also starts gargles of betadine gargles solution to get relief. It will help you a lot.
