some fungal infections do need antibiotics  :)

Its an antibiotic (a tetracycline), it won't work on fungi.

Its worth phoning him or her up to get a clarification.
My maths shows that bird is equal to or greater than the word...

if it is vent gleet - which is a fungal infection - it is now recognised that it needs an antibiotic treatment.
