You need to answer a few questions first which will help me assist you in a better way.

Dr. Sohaib :

Do you still have fever?

Dr. Sohaib :

What about the size of lump? Same or reduced?

Customer:

fever is not as strong as was last weekend as can get up and about last few days, it seems to have shrunk ever so slighlty yes, was just concerened about white gums coming last day or 2

Dr. Sohaib :

For how many days have you been taking Penicillin?

Customer:

started taking them on monday along with co codemile but its only 2 tablets at night for easier sleeping

Dr. Sohaib :

Thank you very much for the useful information. Well yes, i think its too premature to say that the infection is not improving or has failed to get under control. Logically you should continue with the aantibiotic therapy for the complete week; hopefully this will improve (and it has started to improve a little already---fever is not as high as it was).

Dr. Sohaib :

Just keep yourself adequately hydrated and eat a high protein diet. It will fasten the recovery.

Customer:

fever is defo not as high as it was, should a be worried about white gums?

Dr. Sohaib :

Just wait for another few days and see how you respond to the antibiotic treatment.

Dr. Sohaib :

No need to worry about the white gums at the moment.

Customer:

ok thanks very much for ur help m8
