Types Of Antibiotics Used In Medicine?

Hello Rizkyaning! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Cephalosporins are a class of antibiotics that work by destroying bacterial cell walls. There are various types of antibiotics in this class, starting from those that are administered orally and those that are injected. Cephalosporins are divided into several generations. Each works for different types of bacteria, for example the first generation can be used to treat infections of the skin and various soft tissues. The newest generation of cephalosporins, the fourth and fifth generations, are a class of antibiotics whose use is limited to germs that cannot be treated with other antibiotics. In general, cephalosporins are safe for use in pregnant women, but can be excreted through breast milk, so they are not recommended for breastfeeding mothers.
Quinolones are a class of antibiotics that are used to kill bacteria by destroying the enzymes that work in bacterial reproduction. Quinolones are further divided into 2 groups based on the group of bacteria that can be killed. Quinolones are quite strong antibiotics and can overcome bacteria that are difficult to kill with other antibiotics. Therefore, the use of this drug must be careful so that resistance does not occur to this antibiotic. This medicine should not be used in children, pregnant women, and nursing mothers.
Antibiotic resistance occurs when antibiotics are used inappropriately. Antibiotic resistance occurs in bacteria exposed to these antibiotics, not in people who are given antibiotics. These bacteria can infect and kill anyone. Therefore, everyone should strive so that antibiotic resistance can be suppressed. The use of antibiotics must be responsive. Only use antibiotics if prescribed by a doctor. Only doctors can prescribe antibiotics. If you are prescribed antibiotics, take them as recommended by your doctor. Don't give antibiotics to other people.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
