True or False? Antibiotics
Posted 2 years ago
True. While tackling the lurgie in your system, some antibiotics may attack your body’s harmless bacteria too and cause fungal infections such as thrush. This can be treated as normal.
2. Antibiotics can stop your pill from working
True. Some stop your pill from working properly. Others cause vomiting which can also stop your pill from being absorbed. So be careful!
3. Antibiotics will cure a cold
False. Antibiotics cannot treat viruses, which are the cause of colds. So unless that cough turns into an infection then you’ll just have to wait it out.
4. You can borrow antibiotics that belong to someone else
False. The doctor will know what will work best for what is wrong with you and warn of any symptoms to look out for. Taking the wrong antibiotic can actually make illness worse!
