What are Antibiotics?

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed medicines used to treat or prevent all types of bacterial infections from mild conditions like acne, to life threatening conditions like pneumonia. They do not work against viral infections such as flu, common cold and chicken pox.  You are also unlikely to be prescribed antibiotics for mild bacterial infections, as they will get better on their own without the need for medication.
