If you have a fever, visit the local clinic, you may be given antibiotics.
Antibiotics are antimicrobial agents.
Antibiotics (such as macrolides, peicillin and cephalosporins) are a group of chemicals used to treat infections caused by bacteria.
How do antibiotics function?
In two ways.
First, kill bacteria.
Second, inhibit the growth of bacteria.
Both allow the body’s natural defences to overcome the bacteria.
Antibioics can be given orally, intravenously for more serious infections, or topically, as in skin ointments and creams, or eye drops.
Beware, antibiotics cannot fight infections caused by viruses.
Beware, unwanted side effects on the use of antibiotics include fever, nausea, rash, or diarrhoea may also occur.
So, use antibiotics wisely.
Use antibiotics only when necessary.
