In the Name
of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Prevent from Superbug

It was a Great Historic
penicillin (antibiotics) by a Scottish scientist and Nobel laureate
Alexander Fleming in 1928, which started saving so many lives
Although antibiotics are
medications, BUT it has to be used very carefully with recommendations
from a registered medical practitioner, otherwise one may get Superbug
due to Misuse of Antibiotics, which means no antibiotics will work. So,
if one has to take antibiotics, make sure he/she is taking full course,
otherwise may develop ARMY of Superbug (bacteria), which can
potentially cause severe problems down the road.
You must know the
severity of the
symptoms and must avoid taking antibiotics as much as you can, BUT if
you have to take it, make sure to complete its full course (ten days),
otherwise you will sure develop antibiotic resistant bacteria, which in
turn might become ARMY of Superbug, and may kill you, since no medicine
will work for you.
Here I would like to
simple case of high fever to understand. You should look first for the
cause of the fever and take medication for that from your Family Doctor
if it is not severe.
Severe HIGH Fever:
Anytime above 104 degree
Fahrenheit 40 degree centigrade.
MUST CALL 911 - EMERGENCY
Anytime above 102 degree
Fahrenheit 39 degree
Below 104 degree Fahrenheit
40 degree centigrade.
MUST RUSH TO SEE DOCTOR
Above 100 degree Fahrenheit
37.5 degree centigrade.
Below 102 degree Fahrenheit
39 degree centigrade.
Try over the counter
medication, like Tylenol/Panadol
And other cough and cold
Ask pharmacist to help you.
Below 100 degree Fahrenheit 37.5 degree
Above 99 degree Fahrenheit
37 degree centigrade.
Try home remedy or other
herbal remedy first.
Watch it for 24 to 48
hours, if not improving consult Doctor.
For each of the above
cases, if there
is no improvement within 24 to 48 yours, you must consult Family
Doctor, or call 911-Emergency.
Side effects of antibiotics:
Every medicine has some side effects; some are short term temporary,
while others are long term temporary and in exceptional cases permanent
and same is true for Antibiotics. For short term temporary side
effects, you don’t need to worry at all. For Long term temporary
side effects, you will need to re-think for a long time, while for
permanent side effects, you will need to re-think millions of times,
and want to make sure if it is for life saving, like Chemotherapy or
Radiation treatment etc. If it is for life saving, then you will sure
need to go for it, even though it is very painful. E.g. in most cases
mild rash from antibiotic goes by itself and you don’t need to
stop taking antibiotics. Sever rash has very itchy, painful and very
Confusion between side effects or
due to disease:
Here I would like to give an example, e.g. one gets some pimples on
their back or face after taking antibiotics, make sure it is getting
better or worse, if it is getting better, then no need to worry. You
should worry, if it is getting worse, or painful, or itchy or very
reddish etc. Keep in mind due to high fever ones may get this type of
pimples, and as soon as fever goes down, you will feel improvement, so
in this case you should continue taking medications. So keep monitoring
while continue giving antibiotics and don’t panic. Also for those
symptoms which were before taking antibiotics, it may take at least two
days before he/she feels improvements in many cases, so please be
patient and don’t panic, instead make Duaa to get recover from
it. Sometimes Doctors also prescribe anti-allergy etc. along with
antibiotics to support for soft recovery.
Saving a life is like saving the whole world. Save yourself and your
loved ones before it gets too late. (Ref. Al_Quraan_005.032)
MUST AVOIDE ANTIBIOTICS, BUT IF YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT COMPLETE FULL
COURSE (ten days)
think about playing with Antibiotics now otherwise it will play with
you later, since no medicine will work for you and will give you a very
hard time until you die.
