New Guidelines Limit The Use Of Antibiotics When Treating Children [Video]

Don’t expect your doctor to get out the prescription pad next time you take your child or grandchild in for an ear infection or cough.

Find out why.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has just released new guidelines for prescribing antibiotics when treating common childhood illnesses. These new guidelines encourage doctors to take a “wait and see” approach when they see children with ear infections, a runny nose or coughing. In keeping with these updated guidelines, doctors should choose an antibiotic that treats the specific bacteria causing the illness, only if symptoms persist or become severe.

The academy warns that bacteria are getting stronger and more resistant to antibiotics because they are over prescribed.
