What is Eritromicina Gentromicina prescribed for?

Could you tell me what this ingredients are in this medication? ## I bought a bottle of Eritromicina in Mexico for my husband's tooth problem. Will it help with inflamed gums too? ## @Kidcurrey, Eritromicina translates to Erythromycin, which is an antibiotic used to treat certain bacterial infections (typically used to treat bacteria responsible for causing infections of the skin and upper respiratory tract). It may help inflamed gums if the cause is bacterial overgrowth, but I would ask a doctor or dentist just to be sure. @Pam, Gentromicina translates to Gentamicin, which is also an antibiotic. But it is typically used to treat more severe kinds of infections such as bone infections, endocarditis, pelvic inflammatory disease, meningitis, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and se...

Eryocin 250 Drug Information

Can we use this tablet for trot pain? ## I'm not certain what you are referring to when you say trot pain; but Erycin (also known by its generic name Erythromycin) is a macrolide antibiotic used in replacement for people who have an allergy to penicillins. It can be used for dental abscess; chlamydia infection; strep throat; bowel preparation; and syphilis, among other uses as well. That said, I don't think it can be used for specifically for pain, but it may be a good idea to confirm that with your doctor (depending on the circumstance), since it may have an indirect effect to help with pain by getting rid of an infection that may have been causing pain.
