How to treat a sore throat

In 10 years, the prescription rates for the antibiotic azithromycin, increased from rarer than rare for strep throat to a horrendous 15% of antibiotics prescribed. A mere 10% of all strep throat is bacterial and yet 60% of sore throats get useless antibiotics thrown at them. Antibiotic over-prescribing increases the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria along with wrecking the immune system and trashing digestion. According to antibiotic researcher Jeffrey A. Linder, MD, antibiotic prescribing for acute bronchitis rate should be near 0% but the national antibiotic prescribing rate was 73%.
