Bacteria are commonly not too harmful, but can sufficiently injure your life (for example, bacterial acne infections marking skin of face and body with red inflamed dots), but some of them cause lethal diseases (as syphilis – its bacteria are not located in a single part of a body, they migrate all over the body and finally reach the brain, that is when everything awful happens). Doxycycline hyclate is a drug of tetracycline group of drugs and is administered to treat a range of bacterial infections including Chlamydia, malaria, syphilis and various types of pneumonia.
Doxycycline hyclate 100mg is a drug of choice when penicillin is impossible. The drug is used to stop the bacteria causing infection or inflammation growing but interfering into their DNA code and preventing their replication. Doxycycline hyclate is used only against bacterial infections. It will not treat viral diseases. Thus it can not be used to cure cold or flu. You should not take this antibiotic to ease the symptoms of cold or misuse the drug in any other way as a human body develops resistance to the action of an antibiotic, thus its efficiency will be reduced.
