The abuse of antibiotics is primarily the reason that causes antibiotic resistance. This means that the bacteria changes it’s structure and can no longer respond to the antimicrobial drug, making infection challenging to treat. According to the World Health Organization, antimicrobial resistance has been seen as one of the top public health concerns. Another cause of this is the delay in prevention and control.
Reasonable preventive measures include; adopting proper handwashing techniques, covering your mouth when coughing, personal and environmental hygiene, including food hygiene, use of antibiotics under a doctor’s prescription.
The signs and symptoms of a bacterial infection can range from swollen lymph nodes, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills, etc, depending on the area or body part or system.
