Did you know that no amount of antibiotics can cure your cold?

   Colds, most coughs, sinusitis, ear infections and sore throats get better without antibiotics, as your body can usually fight these infections on its own.


  • Over-use of antibiotics can lead to the development of drug-resistant bacteria which can cause serious infections.

  • Antibiotics can cause side effects such as rashes, Thrush, stomach pains, diarrhoea, reactions to sunlight and other symptoms

  • Help conserve antibiotics so that they remain effective

  • your actions can protect antibiotics 

  Ask your pharmacist for advice about your symptoms
