Antibiotic resistance

Take Care, Not Antibiotics.

Antibiotics are no longer routinely used to treat infections.

This is because:

many infections are caused by viruses, so antibiotics are not effective
antibiotics are often unlikely to speed up the healing process and can cause side effects
the more antibiotics are used to treat trivial conditions, the more likely they are to become ineffective for treating more serious conditions

Both the NHS and health organisations across the world are trying to reduce the use of antibiotics, especially for health problems that are not serious.
