Resistance Fighter's Story
I’m a resistance fighter

Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

We are “Medical / Clinical Microbiology” specialists who find the germs that make you sick and analyze which antibiotics you can be treated in the specimen you gave to the laboratory. We have a message! Bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi... The antibiotics only eliminate bacteria, if the bacteria is not resistant to antibiotic!!! Different antibiotics can only be used to treat certain microbes. So, an antibiotic that makes your neighbor good doesn't do you any good, and it can cause germs in your body to develop resistance, making you even more sick! Once bacteria become resistant to an antibiotic, they develop resistance to other antibiotics, making them as resistant as themselves! The resistance thus spreads! Resistance is transmitted between bacteria as well as between people every day. Patients who do not use the wrong antibiotics and even newborn babies can become ill with resistant bacteria. The reason is that our neighbors, friends, relatives use antibiotics in an unconscious, uncontrolled, unnecessary way! What's the solution? Don’t use antibiotics unless the necessary tests are prescribed by your doctor! Use antibiotics at the dose and time you are told! Don’t get antibiotics from anyone and don’t give antibiotics to anyone! Remember: Antibiotics develop either Consciousness or Resistance!
