... nose and nasal congestion). Is this a normal reaction, was I getting the cold anyway or should I be concerned?

Amoxicillan is an anyi-infective (antibiotic) so I'm assuming you have an infection somewhere. If it is a sinus infection, don't worry as colds and sinus infections go together. If the infection was somewhere else, I think you got lucky enough to catch a summer cold, or more likely it's allergies. FYI, anyone can become allergic to anything at anytime. I found that quite interesting since I had taken a medication for years, then I became deathly allergic, swelled up like a marshmallow, gained 25 pounds of water ... the docs thought I had all kinds of dreaded diseases ... allergic reaction. Then I became allergic to everything that grows in Florida. Just sayin'. Some people get really lucky and I'm one. Life is grand.
Peace and I hope you feel better soon,
The Sweet and Happy Hippie
