The CDC has issued this report recently about the rise in antibiotic-resistant infections. Prevention is certainly key–everything from routine handwashing to appropriate wound cleansing, covering your mouth with your elbow when coughing, staying home from work or school when you’re ill, maintaining a healthy diet, etc. And seek medical attention when needed! Please remember, too, that many natural remedies can be more effective than pharmaceuticals. I’ve even successfully treated MRSA infections of the skin without pharmaceutical antibiotics. There is some good news despite the report.
