Wellness Wednesday: Antibiotics Why Less is More

I really like the video below.  These videos were created to help laypeople understand medical issues in a simpler way.  Infectious germs are becoming more and more resistant to antibiotics.  A lot of this is due to the overuse of antibiotics and people not taking the full course subscribed to their antibiotics.  When you are prescribed an antibiotic take all of it, do not leave any, or save it for another infection.  If I need an antibiotic, which thank goodness is very rare, I ask for a culture to be done to be sure the proper antibiotics are being prescribed.  This does mean you will have to wait a couple of days for the results to come back, but it is better to target the correct organism.  Watch the video to learn more.
