you need to see a doctor and submit a sputum sample for culture and testing.

some bacterial lung infections can be resistant to amoxicillin antibiotics.

a sputum culture can check for bacteria in your lungs and the lab and do testing to see what antibiotic an infection would be sensitive to.

do you have a doctor you can see?
