Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics
In brief: Ask your doctor
Proper antibiotic selection & use requires a history be taken, an exam & possibly x-rays.
If your condition is not worrisome enough to seek such a consultation it is not one that requires antibiotics. Random use of a little here & a little there saved from some prior illness is neither smart or effective. Failure to complete a prescribed course of meds contributes to the emergance of superbugs.
