I have had purbac previously for a bladder infection - my son's DR has recently been given purbac for acne - is this suitable?

Dear Brenda,
Purbac is what we call a broad spectrum antibiotic which kills different kinds of germs and does work for bladder infections, skin infections, diarrhoea and other problems. Some people tend to get resistance against it and some people are allergic to it, but even though it is an "older" antibiotic, it still works well and has been tried and tested for many years.
