HI I have gone through your mail as you asked about antibiotic Zithromax for throat infection. Regarding your this question I would like to tell you that correct antibiotic will always be decided by inference of culture and sensitivity of throat swab but this test takes about 72 hours,therefore till report of culture and sensitivity comes one would like to prescribe broad spectrum antibiotic and Zithromax is one of them. Your second question is about dysplasia, for this I would like to tell you that dysplasia means change in microscopic picture of tissue, it is caused by chronic irritation, prolong contact,and by some chemicals like-nicotine etc. Thanks.
