    Hurt my thumb at work. After stitches I was prescribed this drug. I haven't gotten an infection, but I have had pretty severe constipation, lots noises coming from my gut. Now I am dealing with an itchy rash on about 50% of my body. Underarms, inner thighs, forearms, waistline, basically everywhere to some extent or another. Will request a different antibiotic next time.

    Diagnosed with hidradenitis suppurativa (red, swollen, painful bumps to form on the body in places where the skin rubs together). These had formed along the pantie line. At the end of the prescribed 10 days (2 oral capsules/day), the bumps were gone and I was pain free.
