    Probably shouldn’t go to that doctor again, Adam.

    So it’s God’s fault.

    Aggh! The awful doctor that blindly hands out antibiotics! They don’t do anything for a cold! OR the flu! They’re NOT caused by bacteria! It’s a virus!!!!!!!! I won’t take antibiotics anymore. Hello? Antibiotic resistance?? So with the joke about his nose/belly, and over prescribing of antibac, I’d walk out of there. Nothing will cure you but good old fashioned rest and relaxation. Go take a nap Adam!

    My thoughts exactly! Took my son to the dr yesterday and they actually had a warning posted about antibiotic resistance.

    In “Pickles,” Earl once went a while without shaving, saying, “This is the way the good Lord made me.” Opal replied that she’s the one who has to look at him all the time.

    It appears that Adam has been on that med before.

    Do we know that it’s a virus though? You’re right about antibiotics only working on bacteria, but considering how sick Adam is, who knows if the doctor isn’t doing the right thing? There could be bacteria involved.

    I’m with Furienna, it was never established what Adam has, and yes, bacteria can cause the sort of symptoms described (can’t give you names, but I know it can be done). I should also mention that sometimes sickness can be caused by both bacteria and a virus working together. So one shouldn’t be so quick to jump the gun there.

    Other than that, though, AndiJ’s right, antibiotics do little for a virus, and one should avoid taking both antibiotics and what antivirus medicines we have sparingly and only when absolutely needed, otherwise them germs and viruses will develop resistances and reduce the effectiveness of these medicines, not to mention to evolve into new variants of themselves (not that they wouldn’t have done that eventually anyway).

    re: AndiJ

    I’ve never run into a doctor who prescribed antibiotics unless they suspected a bacterial infection. That is mostly a myth. Indeed, the problem I’ve often run into is when it’s clear that there is a bacterial infection, the docs not wanting to prescribe to clear it up. I had one that ran 4 years (MRSA in the nose) that took four teeth and attacked my jaw, and while some docs took it seriously, others just pooh-poohed it.
    The causes of bacterial resistance appear to be:

    1. Illegal aliens bringing in resistant strains such as TB from areas of much poorer health care.

    2. People with compromised immune systems, such as those with HIV.

    3. Practices like sex-tourism practiced widely from places like Frisco in the 1980s and 1990s. The result was going from 5 STDs to 38 by 2000.

    4. Animal use of antibiotics, such as the use (now banned) of fluoroquinolones in Iowa cattle, with hte result that Jama reported a study on resulting resistant strains in the Northeast.

    5. Taking antibiotics that bind with Fe, Ca, Al, and Mg with hard water. The same cations in your vitamin tablet that they say not to take with tetracyclines and fluoroquinolones, are the same as those in hard water. And even some food additives such as iron.
