Amoxicillin and cephalosporin are not anti-inflammatory drugs!Use it right is a treasure, use it wrong is harmful


Every time he went to the clinic, the doctor would say that his throat was “inflamed”, and many doctors like to prescribe amoxicillin or cephalosporin “anti-inflammatory drugs” to him. After taking these drugs, his cold disappeared in a few days. Later, he simply went to the pharmacy to buy these two drugs.Until one day, he saw an article on the Internet that “Amoxicillin and cephalosporin are not anti-inflammatory drugs, the right use is a treasure, but the wrong use is harmful!”He just realized what he had done was wrong!First, antibiotics are not equal to anti-inflammatory drugs Amoxicillin and cephalosporin are the two most commonly used antibiotics, but many people mistakenly regard antibiotics as anti-inflammatory drugs, every time there is a cold, fever or headache to take a few days.Little do they know, this practice is wrong!Inflammation is a series of defensive responses made by the human body after being stimulated. Typically, the damaged area will show red, swelling, fever and pain.There are many factors that can cause inflammation of excitant, mainly divided into the following two types: a, aseptic inflammation: such as gout attacks, rheumatoid arthritis, etc., these diseases of inflammation is not caused by bacterial infection, is an example of the gout attacks, gout attack is mainly due to the elevated uric acid, uric acid salt deposition in the joints and cause inflammation of the joints.Two, infectious inflammation: such as bacterial, viral or fungal infection caused by local inflammation, that is to say, some inflammation is caused by viral infection, some are caused by bacterial infection, some are caused by fungal infection, and some are combined with a variety of bacterial infection.Thus, inflammation can be caused by bacterial infection, virus and other bacterial infections, and even not caused by bacterial infection.Amoxicillin and cephalosporin antibiotics are generally only effective for inflammation caused by sensitive bacterial infection, and often have no substantial effect on viruses, fungi and other bacterial infections, and are completely irrelevant to aseptic inflammation!More specifically, although bacterial infections do cause inflammation, the cause of inflammation is not just bacterial infections. Antibiotics treat inflammation caused by bacterial infections by destroying sensitive bacteria, not by directly fighting inflammation!All sorts of bacteria, amoxicillin and cephalosporin used to is a treasure, but in the wrong and harmful, we have to admit that the discovery and application of antibiotics is greatly improve the survival of the human life, if there is no antibiotics, ordinary wound infection may be fatal, not to mention, pneumonia, lung abscess, appendicitis, cholecystitis, pyelonephritis bacterial infectious diseases,Dr. Bethune accidentally cut his finger with a scalpel during surgery, and eventually bacteria entered his blood and caused sepsis. The discovery of antibiotics gave mankind a weapon to fight bacterial infections!However, amoxicillin and cephalosporin have limited effects, and the following five common inflammatory diseases are beyond their reach.Gastritis:A lot of people have stomach, the stomach bilges, stomach pain, stomach burning sensation and other symptoms, gastritis is a common cause of these symptoms, one of the reason why a lot of people get gastritis is often due to improper eating disorders, alcohol or some damage of gastric mucosa drugs (the most common is the pain drugs), these conditions are not suitable for use of amoxicillin or cephalosporins,Unless it’s gastritis caused by h. pylori infection.H. pylori is found only in acid environment of the survival of the bacteria, gastritis, gastric ulcer and gastric cancer are closely associated with it, just effect a radical cure helicobacter pylori in amoxicillin or cephalosporins is far not enough, the standard solution is “quadruple therapy” (two antibiotics + a PPI drugs inhibit gastric acid + a protection of gastric mucosa bismuth agent).The course of treatment is 2 weeks!Inadequate medication or inadequate treatment may not cure H. pylori, but may lead to drug resistance!Chronic pharyngitis:Many will recur pharynx ministry unwell symptom such as dry throat, pharyngeal itching, is mainly due to the pharyngeal long-term by alcohol, tobacco, and spicy foods and the stimulation of chronic inflammation caused by allergens, and is not caused by bacterial infection, the main treatment of chronic pharyngitis is to correct the bad habit (quit alcohol, avoid is acrimony excitant food, correct the wrong pronunciation, etc.) or allergy treatment,Neither amoxicillin nor cephalosporin works effectively.Cold: more than 90% of cold and fever are caused by viral infection, amoxicillin or cephalosporin antibiotics have no antiviral effect, the use of amoxicillin or cephalosporin in advance can not prevent bacterial infection.Therefore, the vast majority of cold and fever should not be used amoxicillin or cephalosporin, only need symptomatic support treatment.Early use of oseltamivir and other anti-influenza virus drugs can effectively shorten the course of disease, in addition, heat clearing and detoxification of traditional Chinese medicine to virus infection also has a certain effect.Non-infectious diarrhea: Diarrhea can also be divided into infectious diarrhea (bacterial, viral, etc.) and non-infectious diarrhea (dyspepsia, inflammatory bowel wall, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.).Non-infectious diarrhea is not caused by bacterial infection, so it is not suitable for the use of amoxicillin or cephalosporin, even if a large part of infectious diarrhea are also viral infection, bacterial infection is very few.Therefore, it is not advisable to blindly use amoxicillin or cephalosporin for diarrhea. Improper use of amoxicillin or cephalosporin is easy to cause imbalance of intestinal flora, which may eventually aggravate diarrhea and even lead to constipation.Chronic prostatitis, chronic prostatitis is a lot of middle-aged and old man’s room, patients with chronic prostatitis can easily lead to symptoms of urinary frequency, urgency, and urethral burning sensation, some patients will be the back white secretions urine, the key is chronic prostatitis is easy to cause male sexual function to drop, the serious influence the quality of life of men.There are many causes of chronic prostatitis, such as drinking, sitting for a long time, excessive sexual indulgence, long-term stress or depression, etc. The vast majority are not caused by bacterial infection, so the use of amoxicillin or cephalosporin and other antibiotics is very limited!Three, amoxicillin and cephalosporin what is the difference?Amoxicillin and cephalosporin belong to B lactam antibiotics, their role is to destroy the cell wall of bacteria, so as to kill bacteria.Therefore, the bacterial spectrum they act on is very similar, and amoxicillin and cephalosporin are often used only one of them, so it is not recommended to combine the two, because the combination is repeated medication, but will accelerate the generation of bacterial drug resistance.However, there are some differences between amoxicillin and cephalosporin:Amoxicillin belongs to a single drug with a wide range of coverage. It can work on both Gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, so it can not only treat skin and soft tissue infections or upper respiratory tract infections (such as tonsillitis, sinusitis, etc.) dominated by Gram-positive bacteria.It can also treat lower respiratory tract infections (bronchitis, pneumonia, etc.) or urinary tract infections mainly caused by gram-negative bacteria.Cephalosporin belongs to a class of drugs, including first-generation cephalosporin, second-generation cephalosporin, third-generation cephalosporin and fourth-generation cephalosporin. The first-generation and second-generation cephalosporin mainly have strong effects on Gram-positive bacteria, so they are suitable for the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections and skin and soft tissue infections.The effect of third and fourth generation cephalosporin on Gram-positive bacteria is decreased, but the effect on gram-negative bacteria is strengthened, so it is suitable for serious lung infection, biliary tract infection, intestinal infection and other diseases.The toxicity of amoxicillin to the liver and kidney is relatively small, while the first and second generation cephalosporins have a certain toxic effect on the kidney, and people with poor renal function should be used with caution. The third and fourth generation cephalosporins have almost no renal toxicity.However, amoxicillin belongs to the penicillin class of drugs, very few people may be allergic to penicillin, the people who have not used penicillin should do a skin test before using it, the people who are allergic to penicillin can not use amoxicillin.Cephalosporins generally do not need skin test at present, and the National Health Commission has expressly stipulated that cephalosporins do not need skin test before use, unless the drug instructions require skin test or people who have a history of allergy to penicillin/cephalosporins in the past.In addition, during the period of taking cephalosporins until seven days after the withdrawal of cephalosporins, it is definitely not allowed to drink alcohol, otherwise disulfide like reaction may occur, and even life-threatening in serious cases.Amoxicillin was born early, widely used, many bacteria are resistant to amoxicillin, which is why some people think that the effect of taking amoxicillin is so good before;With the continuous replacement of cephalosporins, the resistance of bacteria is relatively lower than amoxicillin.In short, whether amoxicillin or cephalosporin, they belong to antibacterial drugs, rather than anti-inflammatory drugs, must be used under the guidance of professional doctors, must not abuse, abuse may cause bacterial resistance or bacterial community disorders, but harmful to the health of the body!I am a kind doctor Wu, committed to using easy-to-understand words to spread health knowledge, do your side of the health of the little assistant, if you think I write good, helpful to you, then please like, and forward to your side with the same needs of the people!# Healthy Star Program ## Healthy Big Year #
