About Oflomac 50 Oral Solution

Oflomac 50 Oral Solution is an antibiotic medicine used to treat bacterial infections in children. It is used in treating infectious diarrhoea and infections of the skin, throat, ear, and lungs caused by bacteria. A bacterial infection occurs when harmful bacteria enter and grow in the body. This bacteria can infect any part of the body and multiply very quickly. Oflomac 50 Oral Solution is effective in treating infections caused by bacteria only and does not treat viral infections like flu or a common cold.

Oflomac 50 Oral Solution contains Ofloxacin belonging to the fluoroquinolone class of drugs.
