Can amoxicillin treat my ureaplasma?

Can amoxicillin treat my ureaplasma?

No.: Penicillin work by essentially degrading the cell walls of bacteria causing the bacteria to leak out cell contents to kill it.

Ureaplasma does not have a cell wall, only cell membrane.

So, penicillins are not used to treat ureaplasma.
