i believe my daughter used it in the past for an eye infection and this time the doctor thought she might have (though was not sure) impetigo (rash type on arm) so she gave her this medicine again. this is an antibiotic and she seems to get a diarrhea from it after a few days (now i remember the same as last time) so have stopped it. are there any other medicines which are natural that could be taken instead? will also ask doctor but i realise that they dont know anything as i was told that impetigo is not catchy by the doctor and on the web and at the nursery school i saw/heard otherwise! thanks
