Re: Antibiotics after incision and drainage for uncomplicated skin abscesses: a clinical practice guideline
I wonder whether this article has any usefulness for my practice in the UK. Our local guidelines would suggest flucloxacillin or clarithromycin for treatment of an abscess , though the guidance we have locally is not specifying for the scenario of following incision and drainage. I was very surprised at the advice in this article.
