What causes bumps in armpit with constant fever?

Hi I was diagnosed with acute pharyngitis, since then I've been on augementin( for abt 2days) yet the fever doesn't subside, I just discovered 2 bumps under my armpit, I want to know if this is a reason to be concerned, or is it from the constant fever? Like I said I have been on augmentin for 2 days, 2x daily, and motrin 800mg 2x daily, what can I do?

Hi,
Augmentin is good antibiotic and continue it.
Any antibiotic takes sometime to work so wait for two days more and you will feel better.
Having bumps in armpit also suggests some infection near by.
This also will be cured with antibiotic.
Take plenty of water.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Do listerine gargles.
Ok and take care.
