That's exactly what he said. Antibiotics are not needed unless you have an infection in the skin.

Lmao! What? The first thing that pops into my head is strep throat... If you don't get anti biotics for that, it can turn very serious and land you in the hospital... That's how my aunt ended up with a double stroke. Plus another while they were watching in the hospital to figure out Wtf was happening.

They gave me antibiotics for a bladder infection. :/ doubt it would've went away considering I waited a week and it got worse. Doctor said it was bad though.

Well I don't agree with over using antibiotics, but they are needed for things besides skin infections...

I guess im just dumb to this. Usually my kids Dr wont prescribe them unless they have something they absolutely can't shake. But this Dr said pneumonia, ear infections & strep are 3 specific things that never need antibiotics
