Antibiotic Prophylaxis

Antibiotic prophylaxis is a medical procedure that involves taking antibiotics regularly to prevent infection. It is an effective way to reduce the risk of a person contracting an infectious disease, and is commonly used before and after certain surgeries. In addition, antibiotic prophylaxis can be used to treat an ongoing infection, such as an STD or recurrent urinary tract infection. It is also used to prevent recurrent episodes or flares of serious conditions such as endocarditis, rheumatic fever and joint replacement infections. Antibiotic prophylaxis can help keep individuals healthy and reduce the spread of disease.
