Antibiotics destroy or slow down the growth of bacteria and are used to treat infections caused by bacteria.Before bacteria can multiply and cause symptoms, the body's immune system can usually destroy them.
We have special white blood cells that attack harmful bacteria. Even if symptoms do occur, our immune system can usually cope and fight off the infection.
