After all, antibiotics, which are used to treat bacterial infections, are directly related to the health of babies. With or without it, Xiaonan can’t say yes or no across the board. It depends on the specific situation.
Based on years of medical experience, Xiaonan has sorted out 10 questions that parents are most concerned about. You can also compare them and see if they are answered in your heart.
Xiaonan said before that antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections, but they have no effect on virus infections, while colds are basically viral infections. Naturally, there are no antibiotics.
this is not a qualitative change caused by quantitative change. Viral cold is a viral infection, and bacterial cold is a bacterial infection. Under normal circumstances, the probability of simultaneous occurrence is not high.
if you have a cold, you will roar with antibiotics, which will lead to infection caused by drug-resistant bacteria. By the way, antibiotics also have side effects, such as diarrhea or other adverse reactions. Do you think the gains outweigh the losses?
is this a bacterial infection? Yellow green nasal discharge is not the key point, because during the common cold, nasal mucus will also become like this, generally will last about 10 days; at the same time, sinusitis can also produce yellow green nasal discharge, virus, allergy, bacteria are possible.
the key point is: does the baby have a high fever above 39 degrees when she has a yellow green nasal discharge, and the high fever lasts for 3-4 days? Or did you cough for about 10 days? There are, then the possibility of sinusitis caused by bacterial infection is great.
of course, we still have to go to the hospital for diagnosis. After all, antibiotics are needed only after the diagnosis of bacterial sinusitis. If not, please “let go” antibiotics.

The specific dosage should be calculated according to the baby’s age and weight. Generally, the symptoms of pain and fever will be improved after taking medicine for 1-2 days.
what about the unusual situation? For example, the symptoms of fever and pain are very stubborn, and the infection involves the middle ear, so we need to be alert to bacterial infection, then we need to use antibiotics, but under the guidance of doctors.
pharyngitis is the same, 80% of which is caused by the virus. The baby will have sore throat, cough like a dog barking and runny nose, but there is still no antibiotic.
antibiotics are only needed for sore throat caused by group A streptococcal infection – go to the hospital for streptococcal test. If the test results are positive, you will be caught. Antibiotics.
that’s more. Rashes, allergic reactions, nausea, diarrhea, stomachache It’s all about the side effects of antibiotics. Generally speaking, the probability of occurrence is 10%.
if it’s improved, but don’t stop taking medicine until you’re fully recovered. Good, the doctor says you can take as long as you can, otherwise the symptoms will return.
therefore, one of the principles of using antibiotics is to prescribe drugs, that is, specific antibiotics that have an effect on baby’s infection, rather than broad-spectrum antibiotics for a series of infections.
most babies don’t use this drug because it works when there is a high risk of the disease getting worse, such as H5N1.
if your baby only has cough and cold symptoms, this problem can be skipped. Don’t give your baby any antiviral Chinese patent medicine without authorization.
