Doctors often prescribe Amoxil to treat a number of bacterial infections
Throughout our lives we are surrounded by bacteria – millions of them! The truth is that most of the bacteria around us are harmless and, in fact, many are necessary for our survival. Hundreds of bacteria live on our skin and in our bodies - they even form part of our immune system.
Only a few types of bacteria are dangerous to humans – they are known as pathogens that can multiply at such a rapid rate that they interfere with our immune system and cause a variety of infections. When our own defense mechanisms fail to fight off infections, we need medication to help us recover.
Doctors often prescribe Amoxil to treat a number of bacterial infections. Amoxil is a penicillin antibiotic. Penicillin is one of the most famous discoveries in the history of medicine. It was discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928 who found that a mold that had contaminated one of his experiments could kill harmful bacteria. He named this mold ‘penicillin’.
Before prescribing Amoxil, your doctor will need to have a full knowledge of your medical history. Also tell your doctor if you are using any other medications. Once your doctor has this information, he/she will be able to decide if Amoxil is safe for you.
It is very important that you complete the full course of Amoxil to ensure that the bacteria have been fully destroyed. Failure to complete the course can result in the bacteria surviving with serious consequences.
