So they can use antibiotics properly antibiotic resistance let me first give you a short explanation.
What it is and how it happens?
Imagine the white tablets as the bacteria and the box of amoxicillin is the antibiotic
Antibiotic resistance can build up after bacteria have become repeatedly exposed to antibiotics
The bacteria change or adapt so they are no longer affected by the antibiotic in other words
The antibiotic can no longer kill them.
So now the resistant bacteria can continue to multiply even in the presence of antibiotics
Now think of the last time you had an infection
It wasn’t a big worry because you know you can get some antibiotics
but the problem is antibiotics don’t kill bacteria as well as they used to and I see it in practice more often than I’d like to in fact some bacteria are now completely resistant to all of our antibiotics
You know before 1930 when antibiotics were discovered by Sir Alexander Fleming bacterial infections.
That we now see as trivial were often fatal so how do we protect our antibiotics?
Don’t demand antibiotics from your doctor.
We’ve all been there when you feel absolutely terrible and you just want something to help remember antibiotics make very little difference to colds, flu, sore throats, and coughs
So ask your pharmacist for some over-the-counter medicines to treat your symptoms last week I made an article about colds and what I recommend to treat your symptoms so feel free to check it out
Take antibiotics exactly as prescribed with a consistent time between each dose some antibiotics are better on an empty stomach
So they can absorb better into your bloodstream and some are better after food so pay attention to the additional information on the medicine label from the pharmacy and always read information leaflet for extra instructions
Never save antibiotics for the future always complete the course even if you feel better and definitely,
definitely don’t share them with anyone else
it’s widely accepted that stopping antibiotic treatment early encourages the bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance this is probably one of the biggest threats to everyone on earth and the problem will only get worse unless
We make a change just imagine what will happen when antibiotics no longer work
