1. Tab containing Combination of Amoxicilin 500mg plus potassium clavilunaye 125mg one tab three tiems a day for 5 days. This is an antibiotic and can create loose motions in a few, if you happen to develop loose motions, you can start probiotics one tab in the morning and evening for next 1 week.

2. Tab zerodol p (or its equivalent) one tab two times a day after food 12hrs apart for 5 days

3. Tab pan d (or its equivalent) one tab once a day before bfast for 1 week
