Brief Answer:
Complete the course as prescribed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The prescription given to you is sufficient to cure this infection. I meant Levofloxacin as the staphylococcus bacteria is sensitive to this drug as per the report attached. Please complete the course as prescribed.

Kindly drink more amount of water and fluids which help in some relief from your symptoms.
