Antibiotics are only effective in fact used to treat diseases caused by bacteria. However, this drug was also used to treat diseases caused by viruses infection. The result, side effects and antibiotic resistance antibiotic actually puts users in a more dangerous condition.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States, antibiotics are the most common cause of children’s visits to the emergency room for medication side effects. Rest, lots of drinking, and drugs without a prescription is the preferred choice for treating the virus.
Colds, other infections in the upper respiratory tract, and some types of ear infections are not caused by bacteria but by viruses. Antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria.
Although the CDC has tried to reduce the number of unnecessary antibiotics to children in recent years, there are still many parents who often give antibiotics to treat colds and other viral infections.
Improper use of antibiotics does not increase viral immunity, but also increase the burden of health system costs due to a virus that has been more difficult to stop, take much longer, and more expensive treatment.
Antibiotics are the most important tool to combat bacterial infections that threaten the safety of lives, but resistance to this drug is also one of the most urgent threat.
The CDC urged people to be smart and do not use antibiotics to fight viral infections bleak colds, sore throat, acute bronchitis, sinus, or ear infection.
Conversely, if you keep using antibiotics, this is more likely to occur:
1. Infection will not heal.
2. The patient will remain sick and will not feel better.
3. The pain may experience side effects of unnecessary and dangerous.
“Most of the problem of antibiotic resistance occurs when patients are prescribed for the right reasons, but then do not drink properly. So if a patient is prescribed antibiotics, not to infringe the dose saved if attacked panyakit the same again,” said Catharine Paddock PhD, as reported by MedicalNewsToday.com.
