Therapy should be guided by bacteriological studies, including sensitivity tests, and by clinical response. However in emergency cases where the causative organism has not yet been identified, therapy with amoxycillin may be useful. Clinical judgement will decide whether combination with another antibiotic would provide a sufficiently broad spectrum of activity pending sensitivity test results.
