Expert Answer:

Antibiotics only work against bacteria, not the viruses that cause colds and flu. A cold or flu can occasionally lead to secondary bacterial infections of the middle ear or sinuses, which can be treated with antibiotics. So here antibiotics will treat the bacterial infection occuring along with the cold.
