What bacteria or fungi will alcohol kill?
Answer Alcohol (of at least a 60% solution) will kill all fungi, 99.9% of bacteria and many viruses, but does not kill spores. ANSWER: It doesn't kill as well as you would think it should on skin. It will however sweep it from one place on the skin to another. When you go to give blood, the nurse starts with an alcohol prep pad and makes a circle with it going outwards. This is because alcohol is not a sterilizer. Use Betadine on the skin or bleach on other surfaces to kill bacteria most effectively. If an item is immersed in alcohol, then it will kill most bacteria.

Can you drink alcohol while taking pristinamycin?
You could - he question is, do you need to? Alcohol is going to slow down your body's ability to heal. I recommend you hold off on the booze until you heal from this infection. Take all of your antibiotics so that you can kill all of the bacteria, and once you're healed, you can drink alcohol if you want.
