Hello, Donny! How are you?

It is a broad spectrum antibiotic that can be used to treat many types of bacterial infections. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

It will not, however, correct whatever underlying has caused the infection, so you should still consult your dentist.

Is there anything else I can help with?

My mouth and gums are infected and it's not painful, but I'm just wondering if Clarithromycin can be used for that to cure the infection?
