When are antibiotics needed for sore throat?
57 Views
1 Answer
1 year ago
Most of the times, a sore throat goes away on its own in a week’s time without the need of an antibiotic. If your sore throat lasts longer than 1 to 2 weeks or you have a temperature higher than 100.4°F or any other unusual symptom, then you need an antibiotic as advised by your doctor. Antibiotics are meant for treating bacterial infections. Since most sore throats are viral, using an antibiotic will not cure the condition. Taking antibiotics for viral infections will not only be costly but will also cause unwanted side effects like diarrhea and vomiting. Misuse and overuse of antibiotics lead to antibiotic resistance, a phenomenon that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of antibiotics.
The information given above is for Common Cold which is the active ingredient of Common Cold.
