Brief Answer:
Augmentin can be given

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As he was given tab Augmentin previously and has tolerated, for his present symptoms you can give him Tab Augmentin. This should be taken twice daily for five days.

This is an excellent drug which covers the organisms causing causing these symptoms.

If the symptoms are not subsiding he may require lab investigation like CBC, blood culture and drug susceptibility.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Naproxen can be given

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for follow up query,

Give tab Naproxen which wil reduce the inflammation and fever.Give him cold tepid sponging.

If he is allergic to penicillin group of drugs you cannot give him Augmentin. If you have Tab Doxycycline give that it will cover this infection.

Otherwise to reduce the fever and pain give cold water sponge and tab Naproxen. The other antibiotic can be taken only after drug susceptibility testing from your doctor.

Thank you.
