Children do not need antibiotics more often

This is true in part. Children are ill more often, and therefore more often severely ill. However, the same principle applies to children: antibiotics do not cure them of the flu, a cold, acute bronchitis or most forms of laryngitis and otitis. Moreover, by giving your children antibiotics without reason, you prevent them from building up and improving their own immune system.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
