Abstract

Fifty-two children with superficial skin and soft tissue infections were randomized to receive sultamicillin or cloxacillin for 7 days. Twenty-one children in each group finished the study. A total of 16 of 21 in the sultamicillin group and 13 of 21 in the cloxacillin group were cured. One child in the sultamicillin group and two in the cloxacillin group failed therapy. Four children who received sultamicillin and six who received cloxacillin had recurrences of lesions. Differences were not statistically significant.
