As a parent, it is normal to be concerned when your child is sick.  We all want to do our best to make sure our children feel better as soon as possible.  While it may be tempting to ask your child’s doctors for antibiotics, it is important to understand that this may not be the best way to treat your child’s infection.

In fact, most of the infections children get are caused by viruses.  And antibiotics don’t treat infections caused by viruses – they only treat bacterial infections.
