When you find yourself in a survival situation there are a lot of hacks or alternatives that you can use to get the job done. But if SHTF and you or your loved one gets an infection, such as a toothache, life is going to get pretty awful very quickly.
There are a lot of options for treating the symptoms of an infection, such as pain, swelling, or fever. But if you don’t eliminate the infection, the root cause of those symptoms, treating the symptoms is only a temporary relief. Some preppers have explored the option of fish antibiotics in a survival situation as a last resort option.
Why I Added Fish Antibiotics to My Stockpile
I have young daughters still at home, one of whom is prone to respiratory infections and being able to treat her if she gets sick in a SHTF situation is one of my main concerns. So, although I’ve also research natural treatments, I did some research and ordered a bottle of fish antibiotics, cephalexin (Keflex). I had planned to order several other kinds later on, but I started with cephalexin. It arrived, and I added it to my SHTF stockpile of supplies and didn’t think much more about it.
