The oral antibiotics like augmentin, cephalexin, ofloxacin may be needed for 2-3 weeks along with anti-inflammatory drugs like motrin, advil etc.Th iv antibiotics may be needed in some cases.You should consult the ent doctor for the prescription drugs.

You should also do the warm saline gargles to decrease the bacterial or viral load.
