thanks for your query.
You could be suffering from acute peritonsillitis on affected side.

Continue augmentin, along with it you need to take anti inflammatory drug like tab Chymoral plus, anti histaminics like levocetrizine, antiseptic gargles.

Avoid cold and junk foods, smoking, alcohol.

Thanks a lot, take care.
