Have you ever cure an antibiotic to cure cold or cold? Let me tell you not only that he has played with his health, but he can have a harder problem: anti-malicious speed.
This week is a sense of anti-bad anti-diabetes or anti-drugs, capable of microbiologists such as bacteria, viruses and some of the patients to prevent antibiotics to oppose them. When this happens, antibiotics are not more effective now, which causes diseases to be more effective. Despite that they are also distributed from one person to another. Dr. Catalina Hoyos, Pfizer's medical director for Colombia and Venezuela, demonstrates that this problem is a "danger to public health".
"Antibiotics are drugs that allow us to fight bacteria, and so when diseases are caused by viruses, parasites or slowly, there are other medications for each of them, "he says.
The expert responds:
What diseases do antibiotics use?
and what ones?
– "Any disease caused by bacteria must be treated by antibiotics. But many of the causes of flu or general fat (60% or 70%) may be caused by viruses. the viral cause, you should not use antibiotics, because there is no disease associated with the person or bacteria.
In a disease where the viral etiology is, it must be treated according to this condition, that is, a & # 39; using anti-inflammatories, antipyretics (antifebrile). If there are cases for anarchism, anti-humans are used, but not antibiotics. "
Why is it important to use antibiotics well?
"Because those who fight bacteria, that is a weakness (remember that there are millions of bacteria, good and bad in the body). But when it is not needed and antibiotic has Given to the organism, what is being done is that the bacteria move (change), to counter that antibiotic and then, when there is a disease where These medicines are essential, they need more antibiotics, more expensive or in the worst case, these antibiotics do not have an impact. That's why it's important to be & # 39 ; give the appropriate cure for the disease or disease that is, "said the expert.
Diseases that are becoming more difficult to handle include pneumococcal infections (which cause a major disease tract, brain disease, sinusitis, brain fever), skin diseases and prevention.
Within the World Information Week framework of antibiotic use, marked until November 18, Pfizer will be able to; inviting her enterprise & # 39; Saving small actions millions of life & # 39; to address this global threat.
"In this campaign, we all want to be more aware of antibiotics correctly. For GPs, patients, a wider community, and even from pharmacies, they should have an awareness where they can get the pictures that come, for example, with respiratory diseases and invite users to attend the doctor You must investigate and decide what treatment appropriate. People from the community should respect the formulas that doctors give us, they will finish antibiotics over time, friends will not be created, I do not know if you have known that they are say that this antibiotic has delivered me, and they will give it a sister or grandmother. We must leave the decision to use antibiotics by the doctor, who is the only person who knows at the time the medication there to give patients, "said Hoyos.
