Doxycycline 10 days vs 5-7 days ?
I was prescribed it for 10 days but that is for major ear infections. Mine I think is mild and the minimum is 5-7 days, would I get antibiotic resistance taking it only for 7 days?

Probably not resistance but maybe not cure. Go back at 7 days have them look in the ear and if its cured you may ask to stop them. 7-10 days is a typical amount of time, medicine is not a cookbook which is why there is leeway.Source(s): ER PA

take the full prescribed dose of any antibiotic. reducing will increase bacteria resistance.
