I've been prescribed Doxycycline for an infected finger- Paronchyia. I'm very worried about taking it because of the risk of burning the esophagus, which I've suffered with before and was so painful that I wanted to die. The doctor has prescribed me Lansoprazole which will help protect my stomach and decrease acid but I'm worried about combining a PPI with an antibiotic as I've heard that can be an increased risk of C Diff. There is no other antibiotic I can take. It has to be this one as I am allergic to Penicillin and any others cause serious interactions with my other medication. Should I take the Doxycycline and wait to see if I do get acid reflux or take the PPI to prevent it, putting myself at increased rick of C Diff?
