Question (1/15)

Antibiotics are effective against viral infections

That's rightIt's wrong


With respect to viruses (most respiratory infections in children are viral) antibiotics are ineffective. In a few days, thanks to the mobilization of its natural defenses, the child gets rid of his infection. In contrast, antibiotics are active against the development of bacteria (pneumococci, streptococci, E. coli, staphylococci) that are responsible for some of the infectious diseases such as ear infections, urinary tract infections, meningitis. Remember that the best way to prevent a disease remains vaccination when it exists.
