Hi Dr Su S, I had a dog bite a finger. I think it punctured my nail and the side of my finger. I went to the ER and the doctor there gave me two antibiotics. I was given a course of 10 days. I am worried about taking two strong antibiotics at same time. Ginger is swollen and painful. I am hoping for second opinion.
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
I was also given tetanus booster. The dog is up to date on all shots and not a dangerous dog.
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
Are Bactria and clindomycin safe to take together? I am worried about the side effects of clindomycin.
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
Oops, not Ginger, my finger is swollen and painful.
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
Does that mean my finger is infected?
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 23 days ago

Ok!
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 23 days ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
As the finger is swollen and painful, most probably it is infected.
We sometimes prescribe combination antibiotics according to severity.
Though Clindamycin can have side effect, but it does not always happen.
If you feel any new symptom or side effect, you should stop the medicine and inform doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
