What is the difference between antibiotic antiseptic and antibacterial?

I would start by breaking each word down. Antibiotic: anti = against, biotic = living organism. So something that is against living organisms. Antiseptic: anti = against, septic (or sepsis) = infection caused by virus/bacteria. So antiseptic (antisepsis) = against something that causes infection by virus/bacteria. Antibacterial: Anti = against, bacterial = bacteria. So against bacteria. To make it simple, antibiotics are substances or compounds that are used in the body to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms; antiseptics are used on the body to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms; antibacterial agents are antiseptics that only kill bacteria.
