A 25-year-old female asked:

Is azithromycin good for mild cellulitis??

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Killian
General Practice 28 years experience
Skin Infection: Nope. Not in any way would Azithromycin be used to treat any common cellulitis.
Dr. Roy Arnold
Internal Medicine 47 years experience
Not best choice: Cephalexin 500 every 6 hours or Clindamycin 300-450mg every 6-8 hours are better choices if you can buy over the counter in your country. Best to see primary care provider for evaluation, though. Thanks for trusting Health Tap!
