⚕️ Antibiotics

What are antibiotics.


Antibiotics are medicines used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance is a subset of anti-microbial resistance (AMR) and happens when bacteria develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. That means the germs are not killed and continue to grow. This can happen with all antibiotic use. Infections caused by antibiotic-resistant germs are difficult, and sometimes impossible, to treat
