Re: Infected bug bites

Our paed prescribed Augmentin BD SF for 7 days plus an antihistamine. If he doesn''t improve within 24 - 36 h she will assess again. She also said it was most likely sand flea bites. He has an awful one on his calf which has a 10 cm red area around it. Feel very sorry for him. Again, thanks for your excellent input!
