Brief Answer:
Continue Augmentin, get done chest x ray and start fluvir.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
First of all don't panic about positive H1N1 report.
It's good that your fever is subsided.
You should continue Augmentin and finish its course.
Start fluvir (oseltamivir) for positive H1N1 report.
Get done chest x ray to rule out pneumonia.
If chest x ray is normal then no need to worry much.
Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep yourself hydrated. Do warm water gargles and steam inhalation 4-5 times a day. Wear mask when going outside in public place for 1 week. (if possible avoid outside visit and do home quarantine).
Complete 5 days Augmentin and 7 days of fluvir.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Dear doctors, I am suffering from infection on penis almost from last one month, But only noticed it 3 weeks back. Initially, doc recommended me: 1) Hifenac P tablet twice a day for 5 days 2) Augmentin Duo tablet twice a day for 3 days 3) used Candid B+ Neosporin creams for approx. 2 weeks Throughout these medicines, my problem kept on increasing. Then doc. recommended to eat FAS-3 Kit in addition to these creams. But of no help. There are red marks on my penis forehead and increasing on daily basis. Now there is little itchiness/pain also but not much. Now I am noticing swelling also. There is continuous green color discharge from the red marks. Also now I can see swelling and it is slowly increasing. Now, doc. has changed the creams and tablets. Below are the medicines, now I am taking since 1 day: 1) washing Penis with betadine twice a day. 2) After that, applying Candid cream/Lulifin Cream, twice a day 3) Zocon 200mg, once a week for 4 weeks 4) Oflox Oz tablet, twice a day for 3 days I am really scared. Kindly share your point of view..will it help? Also is there any specific precaution/diet I need to have...? does eating garlic helps??? or applying what thing? on the infected area?
