Guard against Antibiotic Overuse
Taking antibiotics when they are not needed can cause bacteria to become resistant to the antibiotic. These resistant bacteria are stronger and harder to kill. These “superbugs” can stay in your body and cause severe illnesses that can no longer be cured by once-effective antibiotics. To avoid the threat of antibiotic-resistant infections, avoid taking unnecessary antibiotics.
