Pain in Breast 16 years old girl no sex nothing suddenly pain since 2weeks Medicine tooked : Antibiotic flucloxacillin?

Breast Pain

Breast
Breast tenderness can be one of the first signs of pregnancy, so if you have been sexually active this last month or two, I would recommend a home pregnancy test. If the pain is in just one breast and doesn't go away, or you feel a lump, or the skin looks red/purple or has dimpling like an orange, or you have greenish or bloody discharge from your nipple--talk to your doctor as soon as possible.

I have seen dark/black like color of my stools. this happened 1 day after taking some flucloxacillin 500mg 4times daily. is it the antibiotic or blood?

Need to check

Antibiotic
The stool can be tested easily for occult blood in most doctor's offices. You should do this, because if is blood you will need further evaluation. It is not flucloxacillin. Good luck.

Might I use flucloxacillin for dental abcess?

Spectrum

Teeth
Dentists tend to use broad spectrum antibiotics. The one you list is not that type. I recommend you do not take any medication without the advice of a health provider.

Can you take Flucloxacillin when you pregnant?

Probably safe

Eclampsia
This is a category B drug, meaning that no damage to the fetus has been reported, although there are no controlled studies. If your doctor feels it is needed it is highly likely to be harmless to the baby.

Whats use of flucloxacillin (floxacillin)?

Treat infections

Mrsa
Flucloxacillin is available in Europe, It is very similar to dicloxacillin used in the USA. Both of these drugs are penicillinase-resistant penicillins that can be used to treat bacterial infections due to streptococcus sp. and methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus(MSSA), They are not active against MRSA.

I have a broken tibia & fibila why do I need flucloxacillin?

Skin infection?

Forearm_fracture
It might have been given if you had a break in the skin with concern about skin infections. Broken bones without breaks in the skin don't require antibiotics.

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

What is the difference between flucloxacillin and amoxicillin?

Different spectrum

Amoxil
Both of these drugs are penicillins. The main difference is in their antibacterial spectrums. Amoxicillin is active against many strains of enterococcus and streptococcus but alnost no strains of staphylococcus. Flucloxacillin is not active against enterococcus, it does also covers many strains of streptococcus and has good activity against methicillin sensitive Staph.aureus but not MRSA.
