Differences And Similarities Between Amoxilin And Ampicillin?
Hi … what are the differences and similarities between amoxicillin and ampicillin? Is it true that amoxilin is a strong drug? Then can you drink one of these drugs?
Hello Siti, Thank you for the question.
Amoxicillin and ampicillin are drugs from the same class, the penicillin group (golonga beta lactam), which functions to prevent bacterial infections. The difference, amoxicillin is more soluble in fat. In general, penicillin can be used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, ears, nose, throat, gastrointestinal sinuses, and skin. All antibiotics are a class of hard drugs that can only be used in accordance with doctor's recommendations. You should not use any antibiotics without doctor's advice. This is to avoid medication errors, especially if you are breastfeeding. In addition, improper use of antibiotics causes a person to be exposed to the side effects of drugs that can actually be prevented and cause bacterial immunity against these antibiotics.
Boils are red bumps on the skin caused by bacterial infections of the hair follicles. This red lump can be painful and cause symptoms of fever. Management of boils depends on the severity, not all boils will be treated with antibiotics drink. If the size of the boil is still small, you can do independent handling first while maintaining skin hygiene by bathing regularly, not holding or breaking the boil, and do a warm compress on the boil for 10-15 minutes and repeated up to 4-5 times a day. If the lump gets bigger, feels soft, the skin is reddish, swollen, and has pus, it is best to check with the nearest general practitioner so that the doctor can examine the lump directly before giving further treatment. The doctor can perform small surgical procedures to remove pus and provide antibiotics that can be in the form of ointments or oral medication. This treatment will depend on your condition when the doctor's examination.
Hopefully this information helps you.
