Antibiotics to run or not to run?

Ok I've had a horrendous gum infection (half my face looked like a beachball) had to take two lots of antibiotics at the same time. Swelling now going down and I feel a lot better. Still have to take the drugs for another 4 days to complete the course.

The question is should I go out for a run or leave it for a while?

Do miss my running. :-(

I'm no expert but I'd leave it until the antibiotics are finished and the infection sorted. Saying this more because of the time of year than the medication. I would think the last thing you need is to get cold into the affected area.


The answer is no running while on antibiotics. The streets will still be there when you've finished the medication.


Thanks don't think I will be running my body is objecting again.
