What antibiotic is used for pleurisy
Hello Ms. Hudson, the treatment of pleurisy depends on the cause.  If it's Tuberculous pleurisy,it requires anti-tuberculosis treatment. If it is caused by a tumor, treat the tumor. If it is caused by an infection, check the pathogen and treat it symptomatically. Usually, penicillin is used in patients with suppurative pleurisy or tuberculous pleurisy.
