After 4 days of treatment began developing rash on neck, chest, inside of arms. It is helping the staph infection I think, but the itchy rash in beginning to become unbearable. Think I'll stop the medication and revisit dr. tomorrow.

My daugther was given 2 rounds of this medicine to treat MRSA caused from a cut on her knee. During the last round she developed a rash on wrist and knees and her throat was swelling shut. Great medicine if you can deal with the side affects.
