My little boy of 3 fell ove and scratch his knee at the weekend today however that tiny scratch has now a raised red bump about 12cm all around it and white pus so hence took him to get checked out and it’s infected was prescribed flucloxacillin brilliant get him home settled n gave him his first dose. Not 2.5ml he took before he vomited all over 3 times I tasted the medicine usually they give a banana one for kids this tasted like poison it’s awful so not sure if it’s a side effect of the fact it’s pure utter gross can I mix the medicine with fruit juice or something to make taste better ?
flucloxacillin for an infected knee - British Liver Trust
Oh bless him.they are foul some of the antibiotics.i would ask your pharmacist if they can get a flavoured one and explain what happened.they may be able to change it? is it sugar free ? Theyre usually the worst tasting ones!
I think flucloxacillin is taken on an empty stomach or half-one hr before food and two hrs after a meal so yet again double check.some people take it with yoghurt.
Hope his infection gets cleared up asap
