How can you keep things from getting even worse? Don't ask the doctor for antibiotics. If you need them for something, he will give them to you. If he does give them to you, take them just as prescribed. Do NOT keep any leftovers "just in case". People asking for them to treat colds, people not using them correctly, people stopping taking them too soon - these have been major causes of the MRSA explosion.
