Brief Answer:
both effective against the bacteria most likely causing infection

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

These types of infections are most commonly due to the stap bacteria therefore oral antibiotics which treat this type of bacteria can work

Clindamycin is effective against stap.

Gentamicin sulfate also works for this bacteria so they can both be used

Oral medication would likely work best so this should be your first option if possible.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
