    Sweat tests were carried out on 14 patients with cystic fibrosis and 14 controls when on no antibiotics and when taking oral flucloxacillin. No significant differences in results were obtained for either group whether on or off antibiotics. Oral flucloxacillin does not affect sweat electrolytes and is not a contraindication to sweat testing.
