Customer Question

I got cut on my finger by a fish hook when I was fishing. I went to the doctor and I received a tetanus shot and flucloxacillin antibiotics. However, I remember that I put my mouth on the cut to try to stem the bleeding and so both my saliva and possibly my teeth came into contact with the cut. I am wondering in Flucloxacillin will suffice

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

yes, the flucloxacillin will go through your whole body through the blood system

Dr. David :

and fight infection all over.

Dr. David :

make sure to eat yogurt everyday to help replenish the good bacteria in your bowels that antibiotic therapy can kill off to help prevent diarrhea.

Dr. David :

how many days have you been on the flucloxacillin so far?

JACUSTOMER-zoiht4pu- : Today is my second day, the cut seems to be getting deeper though
Dr. David :

don't keep opening the cut.

Dr. David :

you should be keeping it covered with neosporin antibiotic cream

Dr. David :

and a band-aid over it.

Dr. David :

allow your body to heal the cut.

Dr. David :

your body will heal it in time.
