Why Should Antibiotics Drugs Already Spent Sick While "Go"?

While receiving a prescription medication, we always read command to spent on antibiotic drugs. If we consume the drug itself, no problem.

Problems often arise when giving drugs in children. Often, we are prepared to give up and not continue because of persistent rejection of the child. And this is really not beneficial for health. Why? 

Doctor Robert W. Steele, MD, an expert in child health at St John's Regional Health Center in Springfield said the most simple bacterial illnesses (strep throat, ear infections, etc.) respond relatively quickly to antibiotics. "So, when you or your child starts to feel better after taking antibiotics for a few days, it is very difficult to remind yourself to complete a drug that may still be consumed a few days later," he said. 

But he warned the three points if the drug was not completed until the end. 

First, all the bacteria that cause infections may not be killed. Consequently then, the infection can come back in the same place or even appear elsewhere. 

Second, it will happen over antibiotic resistant bacteria. You must know, the best way to cause the bacteria become resistant to antibiotics is to "treat them wrong." Bacteria reproduce very rapidly. When they breed, random errors occur in their DNA that makes them resistant to antibiotics. The best way to keep this thing did not happen to your child when she suffered an infection is to give all doses on time. "This will kill the bacteria quickly and efficiently. When bacteria undertreated, some of them may have enough time to have these mistakes occur in their DNA," he said. 

Third, make the bacteria more resilient. Some bacteria can make the immune system to do things that should not be. A classic example of this is when the sore throat cause rheumatic fever. The cause of this disease is not completely understood, but it is estimated that there are parts of the body that has a component that is chemically similar to the germs that cause strep throat, Group A Streptococcus bacteria. So, when the immune system begin to fight this bacteria, it confuses the body (especially certain parts of the brain, joints, kidneys, and heart) with the bacterium that causes damage to parts of the body. It takes some time for this process to happen, so it is common for symptoms of acute rheumatic fever emerged in the days after a throat infection. However, almost never occur when strep throat is really treated early with antibiotics. 

Special sore throat, told Steele that he called "funny", namely that the body will kill all the bacteria itself without antibiotics. Antibiotics only kill them faster which is important to keep rheumatic fever occur. If all the medicine is not spent, then the risk is affected by rheumatic fever is higher. 

How to anticipate this? Steele gave a few notes: 

* Many infections can be treated with one of several drugs. Ask your doctor if he could give something that is only taken once or twice per day. fewer doses helps to not miss when taking medication. 

* Ask whether the drug should be refrigerated. Several effective medications if taken in cold temperatures. * Make a separate calendar antibiotics and put it in a prominent place in your home, so you always remember the time when the drug must be taken. Why not a little troublesome, is not it, rather than the bacteria become resistant?
