 Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.Because over time they kill off weaker bacteria, and the stronger bacteria still live. when the stronger bacteria live, they multiply, creating stronger bacteria. so if the bacteria are stronger, people get sicker, and the antibiotics no longer kill the strong bacteria. creating a superbug, that is a super illness.

 But overprescribing them has resulted in the development of  resistant bacteria , which are bacteria that don't respond to antibiotics that may have worked in the past. Plus, whenever kids take antibiotics they run the risk of side-effects, such as stomach upset and diarrhea or even a possible allergic reaction. like streptomycin tetracycline erythromycin
