This question is just out of curiosity. Are you the type of person who runs to get antibiotics as soon as you're sick, or do you let your body ride out the sickness and develop immunities? Do you do the same for your children?
I was reading an article on the mayo clinic's website about how people who take antibiotics often are going to develop a resistance to them putting themselves (and others!) at risk and creating drug resistant germs (super tuberculosis, MRSA, etc). It's kind of scary when you think about it.

I had some pretty bad flu plus swine flu this year. I didn't go to the medicine with the swine flu (only staying home and surviving) but with the chest infection I needed the antibiotics. After the CI my knee got double sized because the antibiotics froze the water between my joints. So I couldn't move for 3 weeks plus after I was suffering like hell. I don't have good answers for this question. I would be happy just stay home and wait for the resistance but sometimes people have to go to work. Which means medicine. I am not an antiobio fan but if you need it you need it. That's it.
