Since you have all the infectious symptoms, I would prefer you to treat with Augmentin for five to seven days. Take more of water and eat nutritious food. Take a rest well. If fever persists, you can always take paracetamol every six hours until it subsides.

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