Should medication be used to treat osteomyelitis?
Hello doctor, can you tell me what medicine should I use to treat osteomyelitis? Thank you doctor for helping me.
Hello. Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bones, bone marrow, and soft tissues around the bones. The disease causes unpredictable dangerous complications if not detected early and treated. An effective treatment for osteomyelitis requires treatment to get rid of the infection and reduce damage to the bones, bone tissue, and areas around the bone that are affected by osteomyelitis. Depending on the condition of each patient's osteomyelitis, the doctor may use antibiotics to gradually kill the bacteria and germs that cause the infection. Patients will be used multiple antibiotics at the same time and with different duration of use. At least 4-6 weeks of antibiotic treatment for osteomyelitis, usually by intravenous infusion, for rapid, direct treatment.
Therefore, in order to have an appropriate treatment regimen, you should consult with a Musculoskeletal doctor - Vinmec International General Hospital for specific advice. Thank you for submitting your question to Vinmec Health System. Wish you always healthy.
