Pen VK is an oral tablet consisting of natural penicillin’s. We carry the brand choice of this medication in 300mg!
Pen VK (Penicillin) is used to treat or prevent bacterial infections. Bacterial infections are caused by bacteria, a relatively complex, single-celled creature. They often have a rigid wall and a thin, rubbery membrane surrounding the fluid inside the cell and are capable of reproducing on their own. Bacteria can live in a variety of environments, such as extreme heat and cold, radioactive waste, and the human body and only less than 1% of bacteria actually cause diseases in people. Bacterial infections may cause short-lived infections (such as food poisoning), chronic infections that last weeks, months, or a lifetime (such as chronic gastritis), and latent infections, which may not show symptoms at first but may later on in life (such as latent tuberculosis). The symptoms of bacterial infections may vary depending on the location of the infection and the type; however, some general symptoms of bacterial infections include headache, stiff neck, fever, nausea or vomiting, confusion, or sensitivity to light.
Pen VK (penicillin) is effective at treating bacterial infections because of its ability to stop the growth of the bacteria. By doing this, it allows the immune system to clear up the infection much quicker and easier.
