I've recently been diagnosed with quite a case of folliculitis.

This answer was rated:

Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with quite a case of folliculitis. And prescribed flucloxacillin 500 mg for it. I've always tolerated flucloxacillin well, even at the higher dose of 500mg. Even though I'm 59. Do you think this medication will be safe at the higher dosage of 500mg, and also hopefully effective, for folliculitis? I take levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. And occasionally also betnovate for eczema.

Hi. There should be no prolem with the higher dose of the flucloxacillin and it is very effective for folliculitis

Let me know if you need any more information please
