 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
