First: Yes I understand antibiotics are not to be used for the sniffles. Second: Not looking for homeopathic remedies so no suggestions about honey, garlic or colloidal silver - to name a few. Not trying to be snarky, just want the meat and potatoes of the subject thankyouverymuch. I'm not the one with a pennicillin allgery, several family members are. I've self medicated with antibiotics intended for fish in the past with good results. in fact I am recovering from a nasty infestion in an injured finger which got speared by a catfish barb Both myself and my spouse have been unemployed just over a year so there's no health insurance, kids are covered by a state plan. What choices do I have among the fish and other pet antibiotics which can be easily obtained ? I'll be doing research on any suggestions you folks have for penicillin alternatives.
