Resolved Question:

I am in the process of taking Heracillin (500mg) to treat a Staphylococcus aureus infection in my leg. I have traveled to Spain only to find out that Heracillin isn't sold anywhere in the country.
The local chemist advised me to take Amoxicilina penacilin.
Is this sufficent to maintain my recovery?
Or is Flucloxacillin Orion (500mg) ok too?
or maybe even both?
