I have a very bad skin infection on my hand. My doctor said I should be on antibiotics but said they are contraindicated with coumadin. Are there any antibiotics that are safe?

My husband also takes coumadin and has on occasion had to take antibiotics. His inr was fine when he had his blood test so in his case the antibiotics did not hurt him. Ask your doctor who does your blood tests and follows you inr levels.
