Parents come into the office just because the doctor look at their sick child and determine a diagnosis, but straight to require him to prescribe an antibiotic because he looked to his neck and found that he had "angina." Even before departure, some want to leave after his doctor prescribed an antibiotic, to have with you a cure if they did not look worse and the local doctor. So much to antibiotics in the public eye was "powder to any illness, we lost the sense of their real therapeutic possibilities and especially a number of adverse events that leads every effective drug. Unfortunately, all this created a big contribution of their own physicians prescribing antibiotics for common upper respiratory tract catarrh before results are known from the throat swab culture, etc. This behavior does have its reasons, it is not always the GP to wait 48 hours pending the result of the executed swab, Sometimes, not even technically possible propagation time to the laboratory ship, so no choice but to rely on its estimation and experience, but it brings with it the risk of overuse of antibiotics. Then lay person understands the basic antibiotic as a cure for every pain in the neck and gives it to the level of symptomatic medications such as Pracetamol (aspirin) or ibuprofen (Brufen Ibalgin). Gone are the times when an antibiotic used to a doctor when all remedies have failed. Penicillin used to be the only one, and managed in its day a real miracle. Meanwhile, the spectrum of antibiotics considerably expanded, even when penicillin and substances derived from it remained the basic remedy a wide range of diseases.
