Had wound abcess 2 1/2 wks ago, was drained and wick placed for 3 days been on Clindamycin 300 mg. Still lumpy & can squeeze orange colored fluid?????

Had wound abcess 2 1/2 wks ago, was drained and wick placed for 3 days been on Clindamycin 300 mg. Still lumpy & can squeeze orange colored fluid?????

Monitor wound: It sounds like this abscess that started 2-1/2 wks prior was drained, a wick placed and clinda started 3 days ago. If so, the lumpiness and fluid (mix of yellow serum and red blood cells- hence orange) is expected since your body continues to resolve the infection. Continue the antibiotics- it should resolve soon. If you get a fever, or the wound looks more angry and painful, call your doctor. ...Read more

I took amoxicillin and 3 day zap know taking clindamycin 300 mg what is the chance do c diff?

Wish can calculate: But certainly, more antibiotics significantly alter your gut microbial flora enough to allow C diff to propagate in your bowel & cause a problem if you happen to catch the bug. The last remark is quite crucial, as most will acquire the infection in health care settings. Community-onset C diff is still uncommon. The key thing is to wash your hands with soap & water a practice I tell all my patient ...Read more

On clindamycin 300 mg every 8 hrs for abscess tooth and face swelling for two days and now have a really sore throat on side of abscess?! normal?!?

Absolutely NOT: Though Clindamycin can help with acute infection, it takes time. Increased swelling is an immediate health risk--especially if causing difficulty swallowing or soreness in the throat. Sore throat could be swollen lymph nodes, but could also indicate a spread of the infection.
