Is there any fever? Is it responding to the augmentin?
Customer: There is no fever. No redness either. I just feel like my whole face and neck are puffy but they aren't. Only my nose is very slightly swollen at the tip
Customer: I just want my nose to feel normal
Customer: The glands under my chin were painful and swollen on Thursday but they don't hurt anymore
It is soft tissue infection of the nose region and should respond to the antibiotics and will revert to normal once the infection settles.
Customer: How long does that take and why does my whole face feel weird if it looks normal?
Use ice fomentation and anti-inflammatory drugs for swelling and pain.It should be OK in 7-10 days time.
Customer: Do I need to worry about it spreading? Is 500 augmentin enough or do I need stronger
Customer: Is it normal for my whole face to feel funny?
It is an important feature of the face and it will make the face look funny.
Customer: It doesn't look funny it feels funny. Do I need stronger meds?
Seems like the painful nodes are painless already- signs of response.Usually 500 three times can be given for adults
Or 1 gm twice.
Customer: I have 500 twice a day. If it takes 7-10 days, when should I see some improvement? You are saying the tip of my nose can make my whole face feel yucky?
Swollen nose can alter the appearance.Within 48 - 72 hours you should see improvement.
Customer: So by tomorrow I should see improvement? Also it's not my appearance it's how my face feels, is that normal? Do I need to worry about spreading?
They are signs of infection and congestion in the region.Any infection anywhere in the body can spread.Chances are very less when on antibiotics.
already the nodes are painless, which means the antibiotics are working.Keep yourself hydrated and take adequate rest.
Customer: Ok. Should I see the doctor again Monday?
Yes , if the nose is still tender and looks angry.
Customer: It's tender but it looks fine. How do I know whether or not to go back to see him?
Customer: Does this happen to people a lot if they mess with a dry nose?
The tenderness will come down and general feeling of illness will be less.It is not very common , but not rare.
Customer: It just goes away in a few days? I ave only felt sick 48 hours and taken antibiotics for 40 but it seems like I should feel fine by now
Customer: I guess because it's my face it's really annoying
They should be tried for 3 days at least before a conclusion can be drawn.
Customer: What happens if I'm not better Monday? What do they do?
Step up the antibiotics or start you on IV antibiotics.
Customer: Ok. But this is curable?
Customer: Ok, I know I'm freaking out but this is weird and I'm a mom and well... You know
Customer: With my face all sensitive it's hard to do my housework
I understand and hope you become alright fast.
Customer: Thank you for your help
