Hi, thanks for the question. Do you know the bacteria that is causing the infection?

So you don't have information on the bacteria. Depending on the bacteria and culture, your doctor can prescribe antibiotics. Usually augmentin, zithromax, clarithromycin or clindamycin is prescribed for strep. Your best option now is to get a culture done to determine which antibiotic will work best for you.
