Many times, antibiotics are prescribed not only for bacterial infections but also to fight viruses. The problem is that antibiotics were never designed to fight viruses. So, we should question whether we really need antibiotics in the first place for bacterial infections and especially question if a doctor tries to prescribe them to treat viruses. Obviously, if we need a prescription for antibiotics, then we should take it in its entirety. Otherwise, any microorganisms that happen to survive will become even more resistant because they were not completely extinguished with the antibiotic treatment.
