Antibiotic resistance, and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in general, is on the rise due to the overuse and misuse of antimicrobials such as antibiotics. The World Health Organisation has warned that AMR poses “a global threat” to humanity as it impedes the control and treatment of infectious diseases.
Do you avoid taking antibiotics unless it is absolutely necessary?
Today too many people are using antibiotic for everything. I have scarlet fever right now and I am allowing my body to deal with it without taking antibiotics. I promised the Dr. if my fever got over 101.0 I would go into the hospital, but so far I have been able to keep it around 99.2. Stay away from it if you can.
