|Active Comparator: linezolid||
Linezolid 600 mg every 12 hours for 7 days
|Active Comparator: Clindamycin||
Clindamycin 300 mg po every 6 hours for 7 days
- The presence of Staphylococcus aureus after treatment with linezolid versus clindamycin [ Time Frame: 40 days after completion of treatment ]Asymptomatic carriage of Staphylococcus aureus at the 40-day visit will be compared in the patients assigned to receive linezolid to the patients assigned to receive clindamycin.
- Clinical response of skin infections to treatment [ Time Frame: 7 days and 40 days after completion of treatment ]The efficacy of linezolid versus clindamycin in the treatment of skin infections will be measured using treatment outcomes of cure, treatment failure, or relapse.
- The type of of Staphylococcus aureus present at the diagnosis will be compared to the type of Staphylococcus aureus present after treatment [ Time Frame: 40 days after completion of treatment ]The genotype of Staphylococcus aureus which is found to be the cause of the skin infection will be be compared to the genotype of Staphylococcus aureus present after treatment. Comparisons will will be made between the linezolid and clindamycin treatment groups.
