That anti-biotic can be used for infections produced by penicillin-sensitive germs such as:
Infections of the respiratory tract:
Tonsillitis, septic pharyngitis, Bronchitis, bronchopneumonia
also for moderate infections of the skin and soft tissues:
Scarlet fever, boils, abscesses. But flucloxycillin is more commonly used for skin infections.
Hope that helps
Boils on the face, although they do come along from time to time are relatively uncommon. Flucloxacillin is normally the preferred choice.
It is more likely that you have folliculitis that can be infective, this is very common and comes on after shaving and looks like tiny pin heads full of pus.
There are a number of different approaches for this depending on severity, age etc
Sounds like it would be best to recheck with your doctor if not too sure, I am sure they would be happy to explain things to you.
I'd let an MD answer this but generally oral antibiotics such as dicloxacillin (Dynapen) or cephalexin (Keflex), or topical antibiotics, are commonly used for most boil cases. it also depends on your health history, and weight. How bad the boil is – etc.
Perhaps it can, but it may not be the most efficient antibiotic for the type of infection. your doc will prescribe the most appropriate antibiotic.
I'm sorry WHAT? it sounds pretty clever so why not? just google it I have actually no idea! Sorry
