Yes, I think it already has an effect on illnesses and how we treat them. We run a big workshop here in UL for schools where you make antibacterial hand gel, and learn about the pros and cons of antibiotics. If you are prescribed antibiotics you should always finish your prescription, but we need to be wary of how often we take them.
I think antibiotics are used too much. Irish doctors have a bit of a reputation of just giving away antibiotics when the patient just needs to rest and take it easy! There’s antibiotic resistant bacteria now which is a bit concerning, might be a superbug of the future!
