    Antibiotic Medication could harm Babies under one year oldNew born babies are the most vulnerable to infections, and antibiotics are the most common drugs to use especially in infants. The outcome of its use, however, may result to negative effect on the babies physical traits. Another important factors that may be influence by antibiotic therapy are the stages of the infant inside the womb, it may affect the growth process including their weight. One factor to watch out for is the the kidney and liver’s limited function during this stage, because both have not yet fully developed. It is so important to carefully administer minimal dosage on infants therefore; fine regulation of dosage and longevity of the medication should be rendered based on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics scope.

    Antibiotics are one of the most prominent threat on almost any diseases, however, this particular medicine also has downsides, if it is rendered as often as any normal prescribe medicines. It can cause to an unwanted immunity or undermine the level of resistance of bacteria in a body, this could only mean; that if your system get used to the medication of antibiotic, it would lose the ability to fight illness and get your immune system off-guard for possible threat. Antibiotics can sometimes cause allergic reactions on children, and a recent studies shows that the medicine is added on the list as one of the factors that causes asthma. These series of studies have resulted to a never ending debates about the effect of antibiotics on a child and the risk of developing asthma.

    In children, antibiotics are routinely used to treat respiratory infections, ear infections, and bronchitis. While several studies have reported a link between the use of antibiotics during early childhood and the subsequent development of asthma, the overall evidence has produced conflicting results.

    In this new study, published in the Lancet Respiratory Medicine researchers examined data from the Manchester Asthma and Allergy Study (MAAS) which has followed over 1000 children from birth to 11 years.

    Testing, testing

    Information on antibiotic prescription, wheeze, and episodes of asthma were taken from the children’s medical records. In addition:

    * Skin reaction tests to show whether a child is sensitised to allergens were done at ages 3, 5, 8, and 11 years.

    * At age 11, blood was collected from children who had received at least one course of antibiotics or children who had received no antibiotics in the first year of life. This was to allow scientists to study …

    These studies ring a bell that we should reconsider the methods of administering lavish antibiotic intakes to infants, we should reassess all aspect of its effect and expand their potential to be used appropriately on both specific and general cases for the shortest period possible.
