I was prescribed Amoxicillin 500mg x 4 for a recent podiatry procedure. I needed to have a toenail excision on a severely ingrown toenail. My OS didn't want to take a chance that it could get infected and travel to my knee. He has also indicated I will need to take antibiotics whenever I have a future dental procedure. I know there are many different thoughts on this, but I will err on the safe side and take the antibiotics. The last thing I want is to take any chance on infection in my knee.
