Erythromycin is Maracyn.... it treats gram positive (not negative) infections.

Kanaplex would be my first choice. It's broad spectrum and treats internal bacterial infections. You can combine Kanaplex with API General Cure. This will target a wide range of internal bacterial and parasitical diseases.

I can order kanaplex online. If he's still alive when it arrives I can treat him with it. I thought it would be better to avoid maracyn in case of an allergy issue?

Mardel's names are confusing.

Maracyn - erithromycin - gram positive bacterial infections.
Maracyn 2 - minocycline - gram negative infections
Maracyn Plus - Sulfa drugs ( Sulfadimidine and Trimethoprim) - broad spectrum. Avoid this if you are allergic to Sulfa drugs.
