Is there ANY safe antibiotics nursing moms can take to cure Mycoplasma? Have bad throat pain & neck lymph node I want to cure & get rid of this! Help

This sounds more like a garden variety viral infection, and no antibiotic will help. Or maybe strep throat? Check with your doctor: if s/he believes M pneumoniae or strep is likely, then azithromycin would be effective and is safe for nursing babies. ...Read more
