So then the antibiotic erithromycin, basically, translates to "makes the red go away."

I am tickled pink (NPI) about this.

Sounds a bit too similar to the word "eurethra", though. I don't want to tell people I have a fear of eurethras, as that would probably be even more embarassing than redness.

But definitely very appropriate. Nice find. :)
