Thank you for the question.
It can sometimes take 3 doses (up to 72 hours) for a response to occur after taking the antibiotic. Only if after taking 3 doses if the symptoms do not reduce, then a change in antibiotic may be considered. But you do seem to be having a response, and you are feeling better. Please take another dose and this will likely reduce your symptoms even further, with a decrease in the facial pain and headache.

Thank you for replying.
OK. In that case I would recommend a change in antibiotics and consulting your primary care doctor for this. Without any other symptoms such as vomiting, neck pain/stiffness, visual disturbances, dizziness, loss of sensations or movements, or weight loss; you should not worry about brain tumor or anything serious. Also something serious will not cause a headache for only a few days; it will cause a chronic and severe headache. And you have consulted many doctors including an ENT before; so, if there was anything serious they would have detected it. Also a brain cancer would not respond even a little to an antibiotic.
