at the walk in centre. No I haven't taken augmentin.

The following may be taken

1. Augmentin 625 twice a day for 5 days - This will eradicate the infection

2. (Brufen + Tylenol) - This will reduce the inflammation and pain

3. Sudafed - This will reduce the congestion in the ear

The combination of these three will provide good relief.
