Answer

Outpatient therapy for non-severe infection without MRSA risk: dicloxacillin or cephalexin or amoxicillin-clavulanate

Outpatient therapy in patients with hypersensitivity to beta-lactams: clarithromycin or doxycycline

Outpatient therapy for non-severe infection with MRSA risk: trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole or clindamycin. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole may be associated with an increased risk of allergic reactions relative to other MRSA-directed therapies. [87, 88]
