As colder weather moves in, so do a lot of sniffles and sneezes. Instead of rushing to the doctor for an antibiotic, GET SMART about antibiotics.

   Did you know:

  • Only about 1 in 50 sinus infections are caused by bacteria and can be treated with antibiotics.  Find out more about sinus infections here: http://1.usa.gov/1HlOlDf
  • Bronchitis, or a chest cold, almost always gets better on its own without antibiotics.  However, sometimes a lingering infection does require treatment from your doctor.  For more information on when to see you doctor, visit the CDC’s website: http://1.usa.gov/1Adfhfq
  • Ear infections are common in childhood.  Your child’s doctor can determine if the infection is caused by bacterial and if antibiotics will help.  Learn more about when ear infections need antibiotics: http://1.usa.gov/1KQLKU2

Overuse and misuse of antibiotics can promote the development of #drugresistant bacteria. Please help do your part and GET SMART about using antibiotics.

In good health,

 

Kathy Luhn, Health Commissioner
