    Ya, I know -- and I think I figured that out in time to spare my kid from antibiotic resistance.

    WHY do MDs do that, prescribe an antibiotic when the patient doesn't have a bacterial infection?

    A NSFW video about a doctor who refuses a harmful drug to a patient who "demands" it out of ignorance:



    LOL....I am a PITA patient.

    I don't know. If a doctor knows the patient has a viral infection, the doctor should know that antibiotics are useless, and should instead prescribe antiviral medicine.

    Another interesting tidbit about antibiotics: whenever you are prescribed antibiotics, it is important to make sure you take all of the antibiotics, even if you start feeling better and no longer feel sick. People have a tendency to stop taking the antibiotics once they feel better. This is not good as it makes antibiotic resistance more likely.

    You don't really want to know the answer to that question do you?

    But there are "dead" viruses, correct?

    Why isn't it logical to infer from this that there must also be "live" ones?

    Not really, wolfman. If I stupidly harmed my child, I can't change that and telling me will just lay me low with guilt.

    Yes viruses can "die" and that is the objective of viral medicines to "kill" them. All it means for a virus to be dead is that it has stopped its biochemical processes. Its similar to saying a dead battery.
