Dear Ms XXXXXXX


If you are allergic to Clindamycin, I would suggest you to immediately discontinue the use of same.
In that case if antibiotic is really indicated then Cirprofloxacin will be a good alternative.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care
