Antibiotic is given for the treatment of an infection which is caused by bacteria or fungi or parasites. So before applying an antibiotic it is important to know that the illness is caused by bacteria or virus.
Antibiotics are not effective against the diseases caused by any virus. Also if the antibiotics are not used the right way, they may cause more harm to the body like diarrhea, feeling and being sick, fungal infections etc. Homoeopathy is an effective alternative to antibiotics for infectious diseases. It doesn’t provide toxic side effects and brings rapid recovery. But the medicines should be taken as prescribed by the doctors only.
