It varies: The key is that you must never use an antibiotic as sole therapy. Topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid are your best friends, used in conjunction with a tetracycline of your choice (even plain-old-vanilla tetracycline's great.) If you're not clear on this in two months, or if you have cystic acne, consider isotretinoin. Best wishes. ...Read more
I'm one high dose prednisone for asthma flairup. I'm getting the rash from the high doses. It's happened before. What can I do for the rash?

Can I use same dosage of azithromycin in pneumonia for a 6 year old weight 25 kg and also add 375 mg augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 3x1 ? is there a risk of over dosage?
OD on antibiotics: There have been recent reports to suggest that for community acquired pneumonia, a single primary line of antibiotics such as Amoxicillin is sufficient. Azithromycin, preferred for its shorter duration has limited efficacy. Adding Augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) which has another chemical added to Amoxicillin, to another antibiotic is thus not generally advised, unless your doctor determines resistance or other causes ...Read more
