One additional thought - how about talking with your physician about some sort of broad spectrum antibiotic? Your doc might have some additional insights as well....

Mom bought some fish antibiotics.

It would be supremely unwise to take those.

+1 Nothing wrong with getting competent, informed guidance on something like this. Your doc might even have some useful insights on measures to take in order to prep for various emergencies.

My next appointment with my primary care physician is November 23.

Mom bought the fish antibiotics after reading the book by Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy.

An OB/Gyn, writing under an alias, recommending you take drugs formulated for a species so different from you that either would die in the others environment - I'd think about that before grabbing a bite of fish pills. But we all get to make our own choices.

Human and fish antibiotics are the same but with a different label.

Most of this article discusses self-medication while only questioning the quality of the vet meds. Assuming Dr. Alton is correct about fish antibiotics, the only question left would be, is it a good idea to buy antibiotics before you know what you need?

In 2018, when I began the thread, "Customize Your Medical kit," I received feedback on how you can't have too much 4" x 4" gauze, rolls of CoFlex, and so forth. Is that still true?
