There are various strains of Staphylococcus
and some may be resistant to Amoxycillin
but Bactroban ointment is very good against Staphylococcus and even the dangerous MRSA type. Amoxycillin is good against Streptococcus sore throat
. Kindly hydrate your child well. Give balanced diet rich in proteins. Keep the infected area clean and dry. Avoid pressing or prodding on the infected area.
Your son can do steam inhalation for relief from sore throat. Avoid tight shoes.
Wishing speedy recovery.
