Ear infection : Please provide some clarity. Did you see a doctor? Did the doctor recommend amoxicillin? Did you take it in the recent past? Did you take all the amoxicillin?. Did you actually have an infection? Was it a bacterial infection that requires antibiotics or common viral which do not? Were your bacterial resistant to amoxicillin? In the end, the best way to answer your concern is to see a doctor
