I always keep a spare weeks supply of Flucloxacillin 500mg in my handbag for bottom emergencies. I do think it's not working as well as it used to though. Needed 2 week courses the last 2 times it's flared up.
I was on Doxycyclin and then switched to Septra DS
(btw when you are on antibiotics, you should also take probiotics to avoid diarrhea)
Cephelexin, but it only worked well once. Doxycycline worked several times, but eventually that stopped work too.
Old thread but wanted to add my 2 cents.
Just diagnosed with my first. Initially dr said he was going to treat it hard with penicillin. But when he heard I had an abscess on my back 2 weeks before this popped up he said that changed things. Not sure why, I didn't take any antibiotics for the abscess.
Anyway he changed it to a 10 day dose of amoxicillin. Still currently taking it. Seems to be working okay. We'll see what happens once I finish.
They didn't give me any. I did get IV antibiotics while I stayed the night in the hospital.
Every time I have a flare up, my "doctors" (which are just er doctors, I have no insurance) give me bactrum and keflex
Local antibiotic creams have worked best for my son. Metronidazole or silvadeen.
I'm new here My 14 year old daughter had pilonidal surgery this past summer (2016). She was in the hospital for 5 days, was on mostly bed rest for six weeks, using a home Wound Vac.
Her cyst area never got infected. Her doctor gave us a prescription for (glad we didn't need it, I'm highly allergic even touching the bottle!)
For wound care post surgery, her doctors used MediHoney and switched it off with occasional antimicrobial silver gel. They worked very well. We're at 6 months post op, and not one infection.
hi how did amoxicillin at the end work? do you suggest it? did it help? i appreciate any info , as I am desperate now
