      Hello – This is a great question and I would also like an answer! We have just audited all GP antibiotic prescribing for SSTI and this came up a lot, and the antibiotic prescribed was co-amoxiclav. So I have on my To Do list to find out what the evidence or expert clinical guidance is. Any of the other experts know more? Elizabeth
