Took prednisone for asthma, now on augmentin for sinus infection. Painful bruising in thigh. Any side effect ?

Hello, I am concerned... Beginning in December, had a respitory infection, took amox. 3 times a better. Then developed severe asthma . Got a breathing treatment, inahlers and prednisone . I just finished the prednisone for severe asthma. Then got a bad sinus infection . I am now taking augmentin . Yesterday I noticed random (6) bruising on my right thigh and it aches a bit. I m wondering if this is from the medication and should I be concerned. The asthma is semi controlled, the sinus infection is clear, except for soreness in my lower jaw bones.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Your symptoms are related to the throat congestion ans asthma.
For asthma control use regular nebulization either with normal saline or in combination with bronchodilator such as salbutamol. Use nebulization till your symptoms are over once a day for 03 to 05 minutes. Also use a drug labelled as leukotriene receptor antagonist named as montelukast for astma as twice daily dose.
Also take Brufen for burning in the jaws as it may be related to seasonal change and sinusitis.
