However, overuse of antibiotics has resulted in growing incidence of antibiotic resistance-a condition in which bacteria change in a way that it reduces effectiveness of drugs or medicines that are designed to cure or prevent infection. In case of antibiotic resistance, the bacteria continue to multiple and causes more harm in the body.
This is the reason why you have to be mindful about consuming antibiotics and avoid them unless they are prescribed to you by a doctor. They can increase risk of antibiotic resistance and may even worsen the condition you are suffering from.
Taking care of yourself with some natural home remedies or homemade antibiotics can definitely help you deal with common cold, fever, sinus infections, pneumonia and other infections that are usually treated with antibiotics.
