Diseases and Infections Commonly Associated with Antimicrobial Resistance

Antibiotics prescribed for acute respiratory infections
in kids younger than 15 years of age
account for 58% of all antibiotics prescribed,
yet most of these acute respiratory infections
do not require antibiotic treatment.
The good news is that many patients
may benefit more from symptomatic therapy.
