Antibiotics are used not only to eliminate the symptoms

During the treatment with antibiotics, the main goal is to remove bacteria from the organism. Only in this case we can be sure that it will not be relapse of the infection. So, it is very important to use only the recommended antibiotic by the doctor. The following situations may lead to continuing development of bacteria in an organism and consequently, to relapse of infections:

  • used antibiotic is not active to an agent caused an infectious disease;
  • an antibiotic is indicated in insufficient dose to remove microorganism;
  • treatment was ceased before it ends;
  • antibiotic course is not followed.

So, for example, it is known that amoxicillin/clavulanate is characterized by the best abilities to remove agents from the nidus of infection.
