Antibiotics do not treat viral Infections

Antibiotics do not treat viral Infections.

We have developed the habit of taking antibiotics to treat all sorts of infections.

However, It is imperative to note that antibiotics do not treat viral infections such as cold and flu.

The facts remain that:

  • Most viral infections are difficult to treat, they are not destroyed by antibiotics
  • Antibiotics inhibits the growth of or destroys microorganisms
  • Some viruses can remain dormant for years before symptoms appear
  • Certain viruses cause cancer by adding specific genes to an infected cell

Always seek the advise of a qualified healthcare professional before taking antibiotics and together let’s beat antimicrobial resistance by using antibiotics rightly.
