It has gotten worse and the ENT has me on massive doses -4,000 mg of amoxicillin .Iam near he end of the 3 week course and still have severe headache,sweats, chills and 1 degree high and low temps.Dr. Has said they will do CT scan at end of antibiotics.that will be in two days. I am wondering if this might be another infectious disease. Can t believe my luck Can t work really hurting

Hi,

It is rare for a person to suffer from multiple infections at the same time unless the person is immunocompromised. If the fever is settling, there is no need to worry. If the infection still persists even after a 3-week course of amoxicillin, we should rule out any pus collection (abscess), which would require drainage, if detected. Otherwise, we could be dealing with antibiotic resistance, and we would need to change the antibiotics based on the culture and sensitivity report.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
