Can Fa course lucloxacillin sodium 500 gram lower immunity?

I had a sebacious cyst removed on the back of my neck. Four days before that I started on a week course of Flucloxacillin sodium 500 gram (3 per day). Right after the end of the course I came down with a cold (flu?) very sudden. It's unusual for me to come down so suddenly. Could it be a side-effect of the course. Lowered white blood cell count? Appreciate your time to answer. Graeme Foster. -I'm 67, 1.8 metres, slim (not sure of my weight). Had hyperthyroidism six years ago. Have I.B.S. Some arthritis.

Hello sir, its not the antibiotic which lowered your immunity but the previous low immunity status that caused sebaceous cyst. You may have taken steroids because of arthritis who lowers immunity.
