Hi, my dermatologist has pescribed Purbac and Minerva birth control tablets for my skin, I have just read up that Purbac is for BLADDER infections. Is this true. Is there any web site I can go to and find out more about Purbac. I would feel like such and idiot if I was duped into believing that Purbac was for my SKIN

Daizy, PurbacĀ® is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that used to be affective against many infections including bladder infections. These days it is used mainly as adjuvant in the treatment of acne. Good luck.
