    They destroy the pathogens Cell wall and cell membrane causing the cytoplasm and organelles to leak out. They do this using radicals which are highly reactive chemicals that will react with the molecules in the cell wall and disintegrate it.

    Different antibiotics work in different ways. It is important that specific bacteria should be treated using specific antibiotics.

    Here is how some common antibiotics work:
    • Penicillin - breaks down cell walls
    • Erythromycin - stops protein synthesis
    • Ciprofloxacin - stops DNA replication

    to put this in simpler terms antibiotics are against fungi and bacteria that kills the pathogen

    antibiotics are gaining more resistance as there are gaining more resistant than less common antibiotics such as MRSA
