Expert Answer:

Antibiotics should always be used in limited amounts. Overuse of antibiotics can cause the diseasing causing pathogen to become resistant to the antibiotic and thus lead to a more severe form of the disease. Also overuse of antibiotics can lead to side-effects as these are chemical formulations, which may interfere with the normal chemical process of the body.
In each of the case the condition may worsen and may even lead to death of the individual.
