My answer is a question: why has your doctor provided antibiotics for a viral infection. Antibiotics do not fight viruses. I agree, antibiotics do not affect viruses, so the answer is yes, the virus can be passed on to others. *Many times doctors will prescribe antibiotics to prevent secondary infections. For example, if a child were dx'd with viral pneumonia it is probable antibiotics will be prescribed to prevent a secondary bacterial infections such as bacterial pneumonia.
Penicillin is sometimes used to boost immunity against infection in children
An advantage of penicillin is that its an antibiotic that can treat different infections. Another advantage is that it can boost immunity against infection in children.
It's not very common for children to get cancer. In the UK about 1,500 children are diagnosed. This is small compared to in 2002 275,000 adults were diagnosed in the UK.
No. Amoxicillin is a type of penicillin. No penicillin-based antibiotics can be taken if you are truly allergic to penicillin. Be sure to ask your doctor or nurse practitioner if the medication they have prescribed is a type of penicillin. Note: Many people who have been diagnosed with penicillin allergy are not truly allergic. With some types of viral illnesses (esp. mononucleosis), amoxicillin will cause a non-allergic type rash. Also, some children have been treated with amoxicillin coincidentally while they have a viral illness which ends with a rash - making the situation difficult to sort out. If you develop hives or swollen eyes or mouth, you have a true penicillin allergy of the potentially dangerous type.
