Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Having gone through your description, it seems that the Augmentin may not be working well for you and we might need to get it reviewed/ changed ASAP. Perhaps your doctor would check you for diabetes, and to confirm that we are not dealing with a condition called “malignant otitis externa”.

Kindly have a look at this web resource which is quite informative, and may be helpful to you:

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000672.htm


I hope that this helps. Please feel free to inquire if you have any remaining concerns/ doubts, as it shall be a privilege and a pleasure to try and help as much as I can. Best wishes.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
