Using antibiotics while exercising
I'm on antibiotics for a scalp infection caused by a mixture of eczema & sun exposure. I am currently doing vigorous training for the police (running, situps etc). Is it ok to continue with this training while taking antibiotics

Hallo Taryn
Yes this should not be a problem - just don't exercise if you have flu or other viral infections.
