Best antibiotic for bacterial infections?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a wounded one and knew I could get good information here.  What is your favorite/best antibiotic for wounds and bacterial infections?

I think Penicillin is good for wounds.  My personal favorite is LS-50 for anything infection other than respiratory.

It depends on the wound you're treating and how infected it is.

I used LS-50 several times for bacterial infection.  It's actually 2 antibiotics in one, designed to cover as many bacteria as possible.  That's why I use it.
