Is ofloxacin good for mild cellulitis??

Is ofloxacin good for mild cellulitis??

Cellulitis: The appropriate treatment of cellulitis depends on many factors such as underlying medical conditions, extent and location of the cellulitis. A culture is helpful, however not always possible to obtain. For antibiotic choice, drug interactions, sensitivity of the most common organisms, and any intolerances or allergies are all important. Oflox may be a good choice; tendinopathies have been seen.

Duplicate therapy: Both have the same mechanism of action. Do not take together unless prescribed by your doctor. In this case, I can't think of a reason to use both medications concurrently.

Can I use floxin (ofloxacin) when taking penicillin?

Can I use floxin (ofloxacin) when taking penicillin?

Yes: Al, the Floxin (ofloxacin) otic the two are used for different reasons. The penicillin is a drug that hopefully will destroy bacteria in the middle ear and the Floxin (ofloxacin) is a topical antibiotic. It is very important to know that if you have a middle ear infection without drainage and the external ear canal is normal, the Floxin (ofloxacin) otic would be useless.

Is oral ofloxacin effective in case of mild cellulitis??

Is oral ofloxacin effective in case of mild cellulitis??

You seem to like: ofloxacin, and yet it's one of the strongest and most toxic fluorinated antibiotics around, and used often for hospital treated cellulitis and serious urinary tract infections. Do speak with your doctor FIRST to find out what's best for you, what strains you're resistant to, so you are targeting your therapy accurately & not shotgunning your care by guessing. (I know you can buy this OTC in Egypt.)
