Request for antibiotics


Many parents are only sold when they are over-the-counter with a prescription; others are just saying the opposite: I want to raise my children without antibiotics.

Which is the correct ъt? In the pre-antibiotic world, many children have been taken by bacterial pneumonia, hemorrhage, meningitis, and who have healed, with infrequent disease, loss of hearing, and loss. The discovery of antibiotics and the development of a large-scale method of preserving them has extended life expectancy by ten years. But if we return to this miracle, there may be a "post-antibiotic world" in which existing drugs will no longer have an effect on resistant strains, and doctors will again help little patients.

Mushroom in battle line

In nature, mushrooms produce antibiotics - not by chance. The majority of soil-containing fungi (such as penicillium notatum, or fungus) compete with soil bacteria for the same habitat, food. To cover more areas, he has developed a substance that kills bacteria. Humanity was assisted in discovering the phenomenon by an accidental examination of the contents of a lab dish.
More and more mushrooms are being studied all over the world, and more and more artificial antibiotics are being promoted: research is under way. But why do we need more antibiotics? Because some of the bacteria are no longer affected by drugs that are already old. Infants "find" the antidote for poison and are resistant (resistant).

The story always starts when an accidental genetic accident (mutation) results in the birth of a bacterium that is resistant to the antibiotic (for example, it produces a protein that breaks down the chemical structure of the antibiotic). When a patient receives a drug, the bacteria that are sensitive to that antibiotic are killed, but the resistant organism does not, and even begins to multiply rapidly in the liberated area. In the very near term, the patient receives the previous antibiotic in vain, which will be ineffective against the resistant strain. Have a look again - let's not lose weight!

How to Avoid Trouble?

An interesting result was the research that examined the risk factors for the growth of resistant bacteria. It turned out that children are the most vulnerable to get to the doctor with any illness. Unfortunately, some doctors do not know or do not want to distinguish bacterial diseases from viral infections. Why not? One reason is because there are few symptoms that are very similar: viral infections causing sore throats can be mixed with bacterial sore throat, nasal sore throat, cold sore bacterial pneumonia.
Thorough examinations, field trips, and appropriate methods can distinguish between two types of mammals. But many parents only keep their children safe if they are given "good strong antibiotics." Doctors, on the other hand, are made up of sold-out patients, not to mention the drug industry, whose economic goal is to get more drug traffic. The doctor is not in a weak position if you do not want to lose your patient.

It's time

A very good remedy for viral infections is available to parents: that is patience. There is nothing else we can do to improve the condition of the child by creating pleasurable conditions, babysitting, and relieving nausea, nausea, dry mouth, and nourishment. This is how a healthy organization overcomes the virus. But it is not uncommon for a parent to stop developing skin after the second hot day, asking for antibiotics - and here's the evidence: the child will be better by the day. In such cases, it would seem unbelievable that even a small drug would have been repaired in just as much time - the healing is attributed to the antibiotic.

Yeah, bacteria

The overpressure of bacteria is useful - even though the viruses are one to one.
Bacteria are present in the good part of the human body: they help digestion, limit the number of bacteria that are dangerous to us, and keep the growth of fungi under control. Unfortunately, these good bacteria are being killed every now and then (for example, antibiotics, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics) and we are amazed when we suffer from deficiency-related diseases. Of course, the industry is also aware of this: almond flouring dazzles the market with fungicides. We pay for the destruction of bacteria.

You are not against Vнrus!

Most of the viral diseases are overcome by our own bodies, and antibiotics do not help anymore. If we do this against viral diseases, our body will still be in greater trouble than if we had let it heal itself because:
  • some of the beneficial bacteria are killed, which can lead to indigestion
  • Habitats are released for cultivated bacterial species
  • bacteria that live with us are resistant to antibiotics
  • the fungi take control of the areas favored by him (skin, vagina, diaper area, mouth).
  • Fever and fatigue

    According to estimates, one in every five children with feverish fever is the cause of the disease, while at least sixty receive antibiotics.
    It's not up to the parents to figure out what's wrong with the kid, but the following facts help me to reassure us that we left the prescription without an antibiotic prescription:
  • If your child is well, loose, playful, and sick after a day or two, he or she is almost certainly infected with a virus.
  • A child infected with the bacterium looks very sick. If the condition does not improve even after the fever has subsided, it has probably been attacked by bacteria.

  • Take it to your doctor in any case: you may need antibiotics. An antibiotic can save a life!

    Let's make sure you do the test

    Today, your home doctor can determine whether a virus or bacterium is causing the disease - if you have the right tools. Dr. Etelka Korausz (portrait) is one of the few children who have donated a significant amount to this end. Purchased CRPs and a streptococcal kit (streptococcal rapid test) help your patients receive antibiotics only when they need to.
    With the help of CRPs, a substance (C-reactive protein) can be detected in a few drops of blood, which is produced in significant quantities in the body through bacterial infection. A tiny filter on the fingertip and after a few minutes we find out that a virus or bacterium is in the background of the disease. The test gives one of the most reliable results one day after fever bursting. Whether you are looking for a cold or a breath, this test can be used with up to 100% security. The strept test helps to detect whether or not the bacterium is infected by sterptococcal bacteria within minutes. Since antibiotics for throat inflammation need to be given only in this case, this method can protect many patients from excessive drug consumption.
    The cost of a CRP examiner is approximately $ 50, and you will have to continually buy the material you need for your exam, so the cost of a CRP exam is about $ 200. One stroke test is 1000 HUF. The physician should not advise the patient of the cost of diagnosis. You can decide whether to adjust to your own limits or to continue on the basis of fewer sure symptoms. There are probably 40-50 CRPs in the country in general practitioners, and the use of strep test is not common.
    Excessive over-the-counter antibiotics, in addition to adversely affecting the patient, also buy our wallets, as social security supports the cost of drug use through our donations. Dr. Zsofia Dr. Meersner pediatric infectologist, director of the National Center for Pediatric Medicine, says the situation: For the professional, it is very useful to have this two-fold test in a broader area of ​​the child. At the moment, it is the home doctor's own "whether" to use such diagnostic tests or not, and few people do so. It would be worthwhile to find a way to encourage colleagues to use it.

    Targeted, professional treatment

    When an infection infects our body, the immune system begins to defend itself, producing antibodies (antibodies), reducing inflammation. Antibiotics help this process by killing and blocking reproduction bacteria. This type of medicine is ineffective for varicose veins, at most it can be prevented by bacterial infections. Some diseases (scarlet fever, streptococcal throat infection, bacterial pneumonia, cerebral inflammation, hemorrhage) are used to prevent more serious consequences. Central inflammation can be caused by both bacteria and virus.
    If the ear-nose ridge has seen a pus behind the tympanic membrane and standard home remedies (heating the ear) do not use, it will give the little patient an antibiotic. In the case of catarrhal fever, the type of bacterial infectious disease that can be treated with urine is unambiguously defined, thus accurately selecting the effective antibiotic species. Some antibiotics also kill beneficial bacteria inside the mouth, which can cause side effects of diarrhea.
    Because of the frequent use of antibiotics, the bacteria may become resistant, so use these drugs only when warranted and as directed by your doctor. Adhere to the prescribed quantity and duration of the cycle! You should not stop taking your medicine if your child is feeling a little better. This is when the pupils die and start to reproduce again, and the child falls back.

    Bacteria or vein?

    Various infections are caused by eighty to ninety percent of the viruses, except for rare exceptions, there is no medicine, no need to worry, and the body of a small child can cope with the disease in just a few days. If the infection is caused by bacteria, the little patient may receive antibiotics. In practice, unfortunately, it is not always clear on the basis of the symptoms whether it is due to a viral or bacterial infection, and as a result, too much caution is needed in the prescription. For certain diseases, such as purulent inflammation, pneumonia, pulmonary tonsillitis, and scarlet fever, it is important to start effective treatment early.
    It is true that these diseases can be more or less successfully dealt with by the child's body, but the events can be dangerous. In the case of sore throat, sometimes the symptoms are not clear enough. Today, with a simple blood test, the CRP test, your pediatrician can confirm in a matter of minutes whether or not you have a bacterial infection. It is a specific protein of CRP (C-reactive protein), which is produced in small amounts in the patient's body after bacterial infection.
    A single drop of blood from the fingertip is sufficient for analysis, and the analyzers analyze it. From the change of the values ​​one can deduce the efficiency of the chosen medicine and the process of the healing - in this case we get the values ​​not decreasing, but decreasing. The version of the CRP test, which can be performed in a simple GP, is not applicable to infants younger than six months. Of course, you can also answer the question in my address with a traditional blood test.
    However, this is longer, usually cannot be performed at the local medical office, and larger amounts of blood are needed. The disadvantage of the CRP examination is that the use of specialty preparations is still not widespread, in essence the "extra service" of the pediatrician, which is not covered by social security.

    It is rarely needed

    Antibiotics are compounds that have been developed against diseases caused by bacteria. Only one part of the infections are responsible for these pathogens, more viruses, more fungi, and smaller fungi. Eighty to ninety percent of the common infectious diseases are of viral origin. In this case, antibiotic treatment is unnecessary and maladaptive. There are also illnesses in which the pediatrician will definitely pick up one of the representatives of this class of drugs: pneumonia, infection of the vagina, pneumonia, pulmonary tonsils and scarlet fever.
    The plain view is clearly caused by viruses. The possible event may be bacterial, but it is not advisable to take antibiotics for this purpose. It is not certain that the drug chosen is really effective against the highly circulating bacterium, and the broad spectrum antibiotic, which is effective against the majority of the bacteria, should only be given in a very justified case because of its serious side effects: promotes the development of fungal diseases, reduces the ability to function and often causes diarrhea.
    Natal events occur very rarely with appropriate symptomatic treatment (a nasal spray, a specialty nasal spray, a nasal drip, a medication). Prophylactic antibiotic treatment is only needed in children born with certain types of heart failure before surgery or if the child is suffering from an anatomical disorder that facilitates the return of the child. Preventive treatment of asymptomatic family members or schoolchildren of a patient with scarlet fever is no longer justified.
