Hi! I’m Dr Bridget.
The recommended treatment duration is 5-14 days for most skin infections. Milder infections require fewer days of treatment than more severe ones. If your symptoms do not clear during this time, the cause of the infection and antibiotic selection should be reevaluated.
Does this help? Please let me know if you have any further questions:)

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
