Virus or Bacteria

Adam is having a fever. So today at the doctor's...

Doctor: oh....ni viral fever ni....
me: oh yeke...
doctor: ok nanti terus cpt2 start him on anti biotik ok?
me: eh doktor, kalau virus pun kene bg antibiotik ke?
doctor: yelah kuman ni ade mcm2 jenis...
me: *confuse*

Yes I'm no expert, but surely antibiotic is meant to fight bacteria, not virus???

Kalau GP memang begitu lah. Semua pon nak suruh makan antibiotic. Walaupon tak perlu

the only valid reason that i've got from the paed (k*j specialist) was, when u're having viral fever, your immune system was at risk, so, it's kinda easy for the bacteria to attack the system. for eg, u're having flu, yet the sore throat, so, the bacteria coincidently, melepak at ur tekak...

tu je laaa kut yg i rasa ok, i makes sesnse!!! otherwise, until now i still figure out, apa kejadah bagi antibiotik utk viral fever??? langsung takder kena mengena except paying extra bucks for the medicine!!!

anyway, get well soon, adam... mesti dia terkejut dengan cuaca kat malaysia nie kan???

it depends on GP kot.. but as a mother you shud understand how strong your child is.. for example, eventhou the child has sore-throat, coughing frequently and flu, but still active and have normal appetite, then not to worry that much and no need antibiotics.. as the child immunisation system is still strong..

not sure about viral-fever, never experience that before..

Thanks, seriously, I am very happy for you to select photos & use, along with words; I don't really think I can write word for you. I hope this is OK, like your blog.

Hi Aida,

Apa yg FaznFaz explain adala sgt betul. Bacteria is an opportunist organism so when body weaken dia akan terus take the advantages to attack. So, the Dr just gave an antibiotic to prevent from becoming worsen. But tak amik pun tak pe, sbb kalo kerap sgt amik antibiotic nnt the bacteria can develop resistancy and later kena amik antibiotic yg lagi kuat which resulted not good for health la (higher chemical intake). *I used to be a microbiologist.. hehehe...

Get well soon Adam.

as a microbiologist (used to be) - there is 2nd opinion from doctors to take antibiotic coz virus ni pandai mutate die punye DNA. tp kalau x makan pon xpe je, tgk keadaan...mum's instinct is always the best
