Allergic to penicillin & clindamycin. What can I take for a tooth infection? The tooth is being removed next week

Agreed, in additiona. In addition to what the previous doc had in the answer, if you want to have anaerobic bacteria covered, Flagyl will be the choice.
Cipro (ciprofloxacin) Cipro (ciprofloxacin) will be the next choice. This medication is to treat a variety of bacterial infections, not viral infection! take this medication as directed by your prescribing dentist/physician. Do not self medicate.
