I had a boil drained by needle 3 weeks ago & was put on bactrium. Then got developed an even worse boil & had to present myself at urgent care to have it drained & that Doctor put me on Clindamycin. I've bern on Clindamycin for 3 days & ive developed 4 more minor boils... All reoccurrence spots. Is the Clindamycin not working? Or is it pushing out all the infections I have that didn't truly go away in the first place? Really starting to get concerned.
No. Cephalexin is the drug of choice for boils and ulcers or IV Cefazolin.
