We arrived on holiday in Portugal yesterday and on arrival discovered the cuts on my ds's leg had turned horribly manky. Fortunately, the person we are renting the house from turned out to be a paediatrician and he got us some antibiotics for the impetigo infection.

He prescribed cefixima neocef because ds is allergic to penicillin.

What I need to know is can I also give my ds desmopressin or will there be a negative interaction? I've Google but not sure I know what I'm looking for.

Many thanks.

No idea sorry but hopefully this will bump for you.

Go and ask at a pharmacy. They should be able to tell you.

Not a gp but I work in health information - drug interaction online sources say there is no interaction between the 2 drugs but as said for a qualified opinion show the packets to a pharmacy and ask.

Thanks all. Asking at the pharmacy is a great idea.
