Brief Answer:
normally 7 to 10 days

Detailed Answer:
HI

The course for most antibiotics is a week to 10 days

You can try flucloxacillin or dicloxacillin. Both of these are used 4 times a day.

If 4 times a day is difficult then you can use an alternative, augmentin and trimethoprim/sulfamethozole are used twice daily

Cephalexin is used every 6 or 8 hours.

Your doctor can choose one of these, he or she may try the fluclox or diclox first or the augmentin
They are all effective

You can use either the augmentin or trimet/sulf for 10 days ,not both.
