Can Bacterial Infection go away with Antibiotics?

Answer- Yes, however not all bacterial infections respond to antibiotics.

Depending on the symptoms and the body’s immune system, most people can fight off a bacterial infection without using antibiotics.

Pathogenic bacteria are the main cause of bacterial illnesses. Bacteria are tiny single-celled germs that cause illnesses in plants, animals, and even people. Bacilli, Cocci, Spirochaetes, and Vibrio are the four types of bacteria. Many diseases are caused by bacterial infections, such as cholera and syphilis.

Antibiotics are potent drugs used to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics are obtained from specific microorganisms and synthesised in factories by fermentation. These medications work by slowing or stopping the growth of microorganisms.

Antibiotics may not be effective against all bacterial illnesses. Antibiotics can kill many bacteria, but not those that are resistant to them. Antibiotic resistance is caused by overuse or a weak immune system. Antibiotics no longer work on dangerous germs, and infections cannot be managed, making treatment difficult. In such settings, vaccination is the best approach to prevent many deadly bacterial infections and enhance the immune system.
