Depends: Amoxicillen is a great antibiotic for proper indications and sensitive bacteria. Look for some cause for the odor? Vaginal, glandular drainage, lesions, ulcerations, leakage of stool etc. Local cleansing, douches are more common treatment options for many.
Dr. Theodore Davantzis
Dentistry 40 years experience
Antibiotics: Antibiotics are terrific for infections, but each works on a different type of bacteria (many different types of infections, thus many different antibiotics). Please don't just pull an antibiotic out of your medicine cabinet.. It was not prescribed for your current problem and most likely is expired. Please see a physician to be diagnosed.
Dr. Amy Levine
Radiology 23 years experience
Depends: Different antibiotics are used for different infections. You would need to see a doctor and get a culture to make sure you get the right medication.
