    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.

    Quote: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.
