|MadSci Network: Immunology|
Two people at work said they don't like to give their kids anti-biotics because their want the kids to develop their immune system. By the time you feel sick from a bacterial infection,is not your body already fighting the infection thus developing an immune responce for the future to that bacteria? Would it not be a mute point to the immune system in the case of a virus? It would build an immune response to the virus even with the anti-biotics?
