A 26-year-old female was bitten by her cat five days ago. Today, she presents to the emergency room with a fever, a swollen foot, and a deep puncture wound. On examination, her foot is tender, erythematous, and swollen. No blisters or crepitations are present. She has no significant medical history, but she is allergic to penicillin. After irrigating the wound, which of the following treatments should be commenced? A.Amoxicillin- clavunate B.Bacitracin ointment C.Doxycycline and clindamycin D.Cipro and Clindamycin



Ciprofolx and clindamycin would be better. I hope.. As Ciprofolx would take care of positive and negative and clindamycin would look after anerobes.. But better to look for diabetes and any immuno compromised states, . . Limb elevation.. And crepe bandage would help...

What would be negative effects of clindamycin on foot.. Itching? Or others?
