Hi I had cold like symtoms for 3 days (fever, sinus pain, clogged ear etc) today fever went down but have now been coughing a lot. I am travelling and do not have access to my doctor.

I started using augmentin BD 1000mg and took 1 tablet today (splitted into 2, each 12hrs apart). Stupid of me as I now learned that once you start antibiotics you need to run the whole course.
