In brief: None
A heberdeen node is the hard bony swelling that can occur at the end joint of one's fingers because of osteoarthritis, the type of arthritis that one may get as one ages.
This hard swelling will not go away with any antibiotic. However certain antibiotics, such as clarithromycin, or minocyn may reduce the pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
