It just drives me crazy!!! Why some moms keep thinking that if a kid has a sore throat with fever he needs antibiotics! Most likely they are viral infections where antibiotic don't do any good! I'd an understand if there is a strep throat, and after 3-4 days didn't get better by itself, but why don't they understand that giving antibiotic for a viral infection is just like giving candies!!! And I can't believe how some doctors still prescribes antibiotics without doing a throat swab! My doctor told me "it costs 1$ and it takes 5 min, I don't get it why they give out antibiotics like if it was nothing, now that we know the consequences about overuse of them".
I needed to vent, lol I was discussing with a mom who toke out of school for a fever of 101 and sore throat and the doctor put the kid on antibiotics without doing a swab....these poor kids! Filled with antibiotics for a sore throat, antibiotics in their meat, all processed foods, instead of fruits and veggies they eat fruit snaks, that to me are just candies, and than they wonder why they are always sick!!!!
