Default antibiotics stash for shtf

Any ideas on aquiring and storing antibiotics? I know they are prescribed, but they would come in handy for shtf.

What about supplements that have antibiotic properties?

Natural: garlic and high vitamin c foods. Russia distributed garlic to troops when penicillin was scarce.
Topical stuff, many infections can be stopped at the source with proper hygiene (you'd be surprised).
Soap
Sea salt! Great for mouth rinses.

Look into animal antibiotics, I can not and am not advocating this as I have personally never tried, nor seen this done. But I have heard and info is out on the web that horse supply stores carry animal antibiotics and they do work on humans. Again, do your own research on this.

Anti-biotics have a very limited shelf life in stockpiling for long term storage.

You can store topical stuff for cuts and wounds but even that has a limited lifespan.

Most topical seems to last 2 to 3 years, same as toothpaste. I have extra topical and just rotate through it. Also think about over the counter stuff. Antihistamines could really save someone having an allergic reaction. My medical instructor saved her dog from anaphylactic shock by putting Benadryl on some ice cream after it got stung by a bee.

Check out this Tetracycline from Calvetsupply -

Antibiotics - Tetracycline Hydrochloride soluble powder - 6.4 oz. packet

The standard treatment is one gram per day, for ten days - and this "five dollar" package contains 180 grams.

...

Aloe vera. Google the properties. There is a reason native Americans called it the hand of heaven (best translation) and the Egyptians called the plant of eternal life.

Anti biotic properties, lotions, can cure a yeast infection and constipation at the same time.

Anti fungal, anti viral, supposedly helps memory.

And that's not even taking about minor burn treatments.

You can also juice it into an open wound.

Check out Hydrogen Peroxide. Very versatile and inexpensive.

Check out SSKI (Saturated solution of Potassium Iodide)
My wife and I have been using it for years. (Dose measured in drops! Like 3 or 4! Research before using it.)

There are antiseptics, and there are antibiotics. Antiseptics are great for cleaning wounds- antibiotics are for infections. Yes, there are a number of vet supply products that CAN be used on people in an emergency. They all have a finite shelf life. My doc has been my doc for a long time, knows that I spend time in the remote parts of the country, and that I do not abuse drugs, or self medicate because I have a sniffle. I keep a small supply of 4 antibiotics- Pen V K, Cipro, Tetracycline and Zithromax. But they have to be replaced now and again.

However, many folks overlook one of the best medical precautions- that your vaccinations are current. They have done more to eliminate disease and sufering than just about any other medical advancement- but when was the last time YOU had a tetanus booster?

I hate using any prescription antibiotics. Then again I hate taking pills. I have been managing my health through the use of Essential Oils for the past 6 months and it has been working for me quite well. It takes a bit of education to understand how they work. I was totally unbelieving before I started using them but they have eliminated my 40-year long back pain and just recently I had a toothache that I figured would result in (another) root canal. I rinsed my mouth with oils and I'll be forever damned but the toothache went away! Southern Comfort didn't work, but the oils did. I went to my dentist and he agrees that no dental work is needed.
