Default Antibiotics Aren't Always the Answer!

Antibiotics Aren't Always the Answer

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Antibiotics do not fight infections caused by viruses like colds, most sore throats and bronchitis, and some ear infections. Unneeded antibiotics may lead to future antibiotic-resistant infections.

Did You Know?
  • Antibiotic resistance is one of the world's most pressing public health threats.
  • Antibiotics are the most important tool we have to combat life-threatening bacterial disease, but using antibiotics can also result in side effects.
  • Antibiotic use leads to new drug-resistant germs and increased health risks
  • Colds and many other upper respiratory infections, as well as some ear infections, are caused by viruses, not bacteria. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can't treat—like colds or other viral infections—they can stop working effectively against bacteria when really needed. Antibiotic resistance—when antibiotics can no longer cure bacterial infections—has been a concern for years and is considered one of the world's most critical public health threats.

Inappropriate use of antibiotics remains a problem. Widespread overuse and inappropriate use of antibiotics continues to fuel an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Get smart about when antibiotics are appropriate—to fight BACTERIAL infections.

Using antibiotics for viral infections
  • Will not cure the infection
  • Will not keep other people from getting sick
  • Will not help you or your child feel better
  • May cause unnecessary and harmful side effects

What Not to Do
  • Do not use antibiotics unless a bacterial infection has been diagnosed.
  • Do not take an antibiotic for a viral infection.
  • Do not use antibiotics prescribed without a trained professional's diagnosis. Taking the wrong medicine may delay correct treatment and allow bacteria to increase.
  • If your doctor prescribes an antibiotic for bacterial infection:
  • Do not skip doses.
  • Do not save antibiotics for the next illness
