WINTER AILMENTS Posted on 13 Jan 2017

 

WINTER AILMENTS – DID YOU KNOW?

Often people think “I need a wee course of antibiotics” but did you know

  • Most common infections of      the nose, throat, sinuses, ears and chest are caused by viruses. Antibiotics do not kill viruses – they      only kill bacteria
  • Antibiotics have side      effects which may include, stomach upsets, diarrhoea, rashes and thrush
  • The more antibiotics you      take, the less effective they become at fighting more serious infections,      as your body’s bacteria build up resistance against them

WHERE CAN I GET ADVICE?

Ask your pharmacist (chemist) for advice. For specific symptoms such as sore throats, runny/stuffed nose. Cough.

If your symptoms change or you are worried about any new symptoms, speak to your pharmacist or GP>
