Detailed Answer:
Dear member
Thanks for writing.
The swabs for infection will be subjected to culture and sensitivity.
Any antibiotics like the one you are taking now will effect the result.
So you can mention the same to the doctor who will notify the lab to take the same into consideration.
Please write back if you have any queries.
