Antibiotics: Do not take antibiotics without a doctor's advice

Most people are falling ill in the changing season. Many types of patients including cold, including cold, fever, and dengue malaria are reaching the hospital. In such a situation, many people are continuously using antibiotics and paracetamol from medical stores and quack without a doctor's advice, due to which liver and lungs are getting damaged. Microbiologist Dr. Ritika of Felix Hospital told that antibiotics (antimicrobials) should not be used without a doctor's advice.

complete a course of medication
Complete the course of medicine for the number of days and in the quantity prescribed. Complete the course even if you are feeling better after using the medicine because taking the medicine initially gives relief to our body but the microorganism causing the infection is not eradicated completely. By leaving the course in the middle, these micro-organisms gradually acquire resistance to that medicine, and the next time we fall ill, that medicine is not fully effective. World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (18 to 24 November) is being celebrated.

protect yourself from bacteria
Various awareness programs are organized during the week to make the general public aware of antimicrobial resistance. Antimicrobial resistance is a condition in which disease-causing microbes, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, become resistant to drugs. In common parlance, antimicrobial resistance is the ability of that microorganism to gain resistance to the drug used to treat infections caused by viruses, bacteria, etc.

As a result, standard treatments are ineffective or less effective, and this can lead to the spread of disease and death. Due to less effectiveness of medicines, this infection remains in the body, and the risk of spreading to others remains. Due to this the cost of treatment increases and there is a possibility of an increase in the mortality rate. The World Health Organization has identified antimicrobial resistance as one of the top 10 threats to global health. According to data from the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System, resistance to important antimicrobials is increasing globally.
