Hey, most of bacteria are resistant to amoxy clav now , cephalosporin are quite effective , continue medication and see , sore throat could also be due to allergic reaction to dust , food items , so allergy has to be ruled out . gargle with salt water daily ,avoid oily foods , curried food items .If symptoms aggrevates get an chest x Ray and consult physician.
