Hi, Siva,
Thanks for query.
Your mother is a diabetic and any infection with diabetes to be taken seriously.
Your mother has her leg is affected so we should keep in mind about diabetic foot which is serious and should keep infection under control so doctor has prescribed higher antibiotic.
Ok and bye.
