Safe Use of Antibiotics

Mother :

Doctor, what's wrong with my girl?  Does she need any antibiotics?

Doctor :

No.  She has the flu. Antibiotics aren't necessary.

Mother:

But won't she recover faster with antibiotics?

Doctor:

No! Antibiotics only work against bacteria.
They don't work for viral infections such as a cold or the flu.

Mother:

Umm… Which is for a fever? Which is for a cough?
Am I asking too many questions, doctor?

Doctor:

Not at all! Please do ask questions so you know more about drugs and how they should be used.
