Answer

K granulomatis genital and mucocutaneous infections are preferably treated with doxycycline for 3 weeks and until the lesions are healed. Consider adding gentamicin if no improvement is noted within the first 36-72 hours. Alternative antibiotics include azithromycin, ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole.
