Well after single dose of antibiotic , ideally it takes a week or so to resolve symptoms , antibiotics usually kills bacteria after single dose , but various inflammatory mediators that are released and which produce symptoms may need little time to wash out from body .

So a week time period may be sufficient to get rid of symptoms .

Regards ***** ***** luck.
