The risks that are associated with self-medication include: Inaccurate diagnosis. Using inappropriate medications that cause side effects. Masking the symptoms of a serious condition. Delaying medical advice. Inaccurate dosage that leads to accidental overdoseYour Question is not clear to me . Please ask your question more clearly and in detail and also try be more specific and descriptive.It's important to remember that antibiotics only fight bacteria -- they do not fight infections caused by viruses. That means they won't work for colds, most sore throats and bronchitis and some ear infections. Yet, one in three antibiotic prescriptions in the U.S. are given to treat those conditions. The unnecessary doses are a potential health threat.
