In brief: Fever & ear infectio

high fever & irritability after full 72 hours of amoxil (amoxicillin) means either the bacterial infection is resistant to amoxil (amoxicillin) or a viral infection, he needs a F/U appt with his pediatrician ASAP.
continue treatment , control fever & keep him hydrated at the mean time. I hope he gets better soon, good l

The amoxicillin may not have had enough time to work, or a different antibiotic may be needed. This sounds like a sinus infection. High fever is a reason to call or make appointment with your doctor
