Description

What is Amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin is an antibiotic that is used to treat infections in different parts of the body caused by certain types of bacteria. It can also be used to prevent the body from acquiring infections, especially after surgery.

 

How Does Amoxicillin Work?

Bacteria are microscopic single-cell microbes that surround us. Some of them are helpful, for instance, some bacteria in help in the breakdown of food in the intestines. However, when some bacteria enters the body either through the airway, mouth, eyes, or urogenital openings, they can cause infections. Amoxicillin works by inhibiting the growth and reproduction of bacteria. It kills them and relieves the body from all the symptoms of bacterial infections.
