What are antibiotics?
Antibiotics are important medicines as they help fight infections caused by bacteria. However, bacteria find ways to resist antibiotics, so that they no longer work. The more we use antibiotics, the less effective they become, so we should use them carefully.
How to use antibiotics carefully?
Basically, don't take them if you don’t need them. If you have a virus, antibiotics won't work. Since viruses cause all colds and most sore throats and coughs, you should ask your chemist tor advice rather than take antibiotics.
When are antibiotics the answer?
Your doctor must prescribe antibiotics when you need them, for example, for pneumonia. Remember, if you only use antibiotics when necessary, they are more likely to work when you really need them.
