Suggest antibiotics for lesions while being treated for pemphigus vulgaris
Doxycycline, cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, cyclosporine
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and understand your concern.
There are many medicines available for the treatment of pemphigus vulagaris.
As far as long term antibiotic is concerned you can take capsule doxycycline 100 mg once daily at bedtime.
Besides this there are many drugs like cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, cyclosporine which can help in faster healing of pemphigus lesions.
You can go for any of these medicines under the supervision of the doctor and after discussing your problem individually.
You can take antibiotic for 6-8 weeks.
Usually cyclosporine has the fastest onset of action but cyclophosphamide is considered more efficacious in pemphigus vulgaris.
I would recommend you to go for cyclophosphamide.

I have reviewed the attached photograph and it is looking like an active disease with secondary infection.
You definitely require an antibiotic course.
You should consult your doctor and discuss regarding the treatment options.
