Dear Student,

Frequent and inappropriate use of antibiotics selects bacteria that can resist treatment. These resistant bacteria require higher doses of medicine or stronger antibiotics to treat. Thus, this is the reason we should antibiotics for common diseases like cold, etc.
 
Hope this helps,

Cheers!!

Most antibiotics are harmful to our body.Antibiotics which are harmful to bacteria/ viruses etc can also be harmful to us. All of us have immune system to fight against bacteria/ viruses. Antibiotics help us but it costs, then we are dependent on these medicines.
