Depends on infection: It really depends on what type of infection you need to treat. It is likely safe to treat with a 3rd generation cephalosporin (cefdinir), or another class of antibiotic altogether. Other types include antibiotics such as biaxin and cipro (ciprofloxacin). Again, it depends on the infection you need to treat.
