In brief: Not necessarily.
Antibiotics should be used only for identified bacterial infections, or strongly suspected specific indications.
General use of antibiotics, including antibacterial soaps, kills off good bacteria and weaker bacteria, allowing room for resistant and more virulent bacteria to grow and flourish.
