Quote:Throat and ear infection but doctor said it's viral so I can't take antibiotics just have to ride it out Sad


Seems as if they call all illnesses 'viral' now. I'm sure it's just the NHS saving money on antibiotics. How do they know if an infection is viral??

Hope you're feeling better now.

Reading this made me grumpy Smile

Mmmmm sounds familiar, was prone to throat infections for nearly 20 years and was a constant battle, despite my notes, to get antibiotics. It got to the point I used to go in and say "I've got a throat inflection and think it's bacterial". I used to spend 2 weeks floored until some gave in and prescribed antibiotics. I was lucky i had an understanding employer who believed i wasn't at it being off 2/3 weeks at a time with with it.

Only when I moved house and had a Doctor who cared and took swabs each time which came back 100% bacterial did I get them quick.

The only way for a Doctor to tell for sure is take a swab and get it tested so if you feel really bad go back and ask!

there are very good medical and public health reasons for not giving out antibiotics willy-nilly. I agree a swab would be definitive, and I can sympathise with the 2 posters above. But I would still guess that the majority of antibiotics given out today are needless and inappropriate. That mightn't be a problem if it didn't lead to evolving resisitance from the bugs in question, leading to more intransigent superbugs (thats probably how MRSA cam about)....

Yes, I totally agree about the over-use of antibiotics but it's just worrying that they class so many ailments as viruses without doing any real checks and I still think that cost saving is a factor in this. (This is the grumpy group, after all.) Wink
