Swelled throat,ear infection,drainage into throat, prescribed amoxicillin, chest pain, headache, bloody test in mouth. Treatment?

I took my 10 year old son in this morning because his throat was swollen along with his tonsils. He was just diagnosed with an ear infection, with drainage going down into his throat. He has taken 2 doses of amoxicillin and has complained once of a headache, upper chest pain and a slight bloody taste in mouth. i know he's only had the last symptoms occur once, but is it something to worry about? or keep track of?

hello dear
thanks for your query at hcm
doctor has prescribed correct medication only.
there is nothing to worry, wait atleast one or two days for antibiotic to work on the body infection.
in children upper respiratory tract infection are very common, tonsil infection will also occur with respiratory infection.
if symptoms are not decreasing , fever, altered sensorium then take child to doctor
