What is erythromycin?
Erythromycin is an antibiotic medication used for the treatment of bacterial infections in various areas of the body. This drug is commonly administered via an extended oral capsule, oral tablet, or suspension (liquid). The specific method of administration will depend on the infection being treated.
Erythromycin is an antibiotic, which means that it is ineffective against viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. This medication is prescribed to treat existing infections, and should not be used as a preventative measure against bacterial infections. Doing so can actually make you more resistant to antibiotic treatment.
