This is a great drug for those who can tolerate it.
I found this on the net as it deals with yourr question and much more.:

"Amoxil is an antibiotic (class of penicillin's or aminopenicillin group) manufactured by Glaxosmithkline (United Kingdom trademark Amoxil), prescribed by a physician for the treatment of various bacterial infections,
including: middle ear infection (Otitis), gonorrhea, skin infections, upper and lower respiratory tract infections (pneomonia), bronchitis, tonsillitis, and infections of the genital (herpes) and urinary tract. Also, prescribed before some surgery, dental work (Treating a dental abscess, when the nerve of a tooth has been infected) or preventing infection. Amoxicillin compared to the original antibiotic Penicillin, combats more bacteria infections, and better able to resist stomach acid. Amoxil is one of the most popular used prescription drugs in the United States. The medication could be combined with other drugs, such as Prevacid and Biaxin, for treating duodenal ulcers caused by bacteria (Recommended dosage: One gram of Amoxil in combination with 500 milligrams of Biaxin, and 30 milligrams of Prevacid, taken every 12 to 14 hours. Alternatively, one gram of Amoxil taken with 30 milligrams of Prevacid every eight hours for 14 days). Amoxil can be taken with or without food. "

yes it can
but i prefer amoxicillin+ clavulinic acid (augmentin) to avoid the degredation of amoxicillin by penicillinase enzymes so it gives better performance .
you can also use 2nd or 3rd generation cephalosporins as it has high spectrum than amoxicillin
