Need to change antib: If you can not tolerate Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) due stomach pain and distress, you need to take a different antibiotic.If your doctor will not prescribe another antibiotic which you need.
You have two choices with diagnosis of cellulitis of leg, either to consult another doctor or go to er for treatment of cellulitis.
