Antibiolics to Treat Infection

Buy Antibiotics

What are antibiotics for?

Antibiotics are commonly used to treat an infection which has been caused by some form of bacteria. The antibiotic targets the micro organisms such as bacteria, parasites and fungi. It is important to know that antibiotics are not effective against viruses.

Antibiotics are effective in treating bacterial chest infections, throat infections, tooth infections, UTI's, acne and many more other infections the body might encounter.

If you are suffering from an infection it is very important to know if the infection has been caused by bacteria or a virus. A broad-spectrum antibiotic can be used to treat a wide range of infections. A narrow-spectrum antibiotic is only effective against a few types of bacteria. There are antibiotics that attack aerobic bacteria, while others work against anaerobic bacteria. Aerobic bacteria need oxygen to survice and multiple, while anaerobic bacteria don't.

How do antibiotics work?

Although there are a number of different types of antibiotic they all work in one of two ways. A bactericidal antibiotic kills the bacteria. Penicillin is a bactericidal. A bactericidal usually either interferes with the formation of the bacterium's cell wall or its cell contents where a bacteriostatic antibiotic stops bacteria from multiplying.
