Antibiotic overuse. What would happen?

Antibiotics are drugs that are used to treat bacterial infections. “Antibacterials” is another term for them. They cure infections by killing or inhibiting bacterial growth. Antibiotics are still effective, life-saving treatments for those suffering from some severe illnesses today. They can also keep minor infections from becoming more severe. Antibiotics, in addition to treating infectious illnesses, allowed many medical treatments, such as open-heart surgery, cancer therapy, and organ transplants.
Some bacterial illnesses may not necessitate the use of antibiotics. Some ear infections and sinus infections, for example, may not require them. Antibiotic overuse arises as a result of the common false idea that they are useful for a wide range of diseases and because many physicians are eager to prescribe antibiotics if patients want them. Taking antibiotics when they aren’t needed, on the other hand, will not assist you and may cause serious health effects. In this article, we will talk about the side effects of overusing antibiotics as part of the awareness activities of the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week:
1. When antibiotics are overused, the germs are not effectively killed.

2. The germs adapt mechanisms to resist the effect of the antibiotic.

3. Antibiotic-resistant germs no longer respond to the usual antibiotics.

4. That means the germs are not killed and continue to grow.

5. Then you lose the ability to fight infections and control diseases.

6. Consult a doctor before taking any medications and count to 10!
