Bacteria can cause serious health problems, and modern medicine doesn’t have a solution to every problem. Although the technology has advanced a lot in the past decade, some bacteria are resistant to antibiotics.
“Antibiotics are prescription drugs that help treat infections caused by bacteria. Some of the more common infections treated with antibiotics include bronchitis, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections. Antibiotics work by killing the bacteria causing the infection or by stopping the bacteria from growing and multiplying.
Antibiotics only work to treat bacterial infections. They don’t work for infections caused by viruses, which can include the common cold, runny nose, most coughs and bronchitis, most sore throats, and the flu. So if your doctor doesn’t prescribe an antibiotic for your cold, there’s a good reason for it — it won’t work!
There are many different groups, or classes, of antibiotics. All of these classes have side effects, which typically affect men and women in the same way. However, certain side effects are more common in some antibiotics than in others.”
Antibiotics may cause serious side-effects, including:
- Soft stools, diarrhea
- Upset stomach
- Fungal (yeast) infections (thrush, etc.)
The situation can get even worse:
- Vaginal yeast infections accompanied with white discharge and itching
- Mouth sores and white patches in the oral cavity
- Allergic reactions (difficulty breathing and facial swelling)
- Watery or bloody diarrhea/stomach cramps.
Antibiotics may cause long-term side effects, but the risk isn’t too high.
