Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotics treat bacteria not viruses. Antibiotics may treat kidney infections, bacterial tonsillitis, pneumonia but they won’t treat colds and flu, most coughs and most sore throat. Most infections will get better on their own and antibiotics are rarely needed. The less we rely on and use antibiotics, the more effective they will be when we really need them. Always speak to a healthcare professional about the best treatment for you – Antibiotics are not always the right treatment. For more information please look at the SeriouslyResistant website.
