Robert,Great job on your post this week. I think there has been a vast amount of misdiagnosing going on with the common cold. Every time I work and there is a child that comes in with the sniffles, they are almost always diagnosed with strep or the flu. No one ever tells the family that the child has a cold. Instead it’s Tamiflu and a large bill. Children younger than six are at greatestrisk of colds, especially if they spend time in child-care settings (Mayo Clinic, 2018). This age group is one of the most prevalent groups that come down with colds, but the elderly also suffer from this malady. What most parents cannot seem to comprehend is that antibiotics will not cure the common cold (Centers of Disease control and Prevention, 2018). It must run its course. However, this doesn’t sit well with the parents and they insist their children need antibiotics, not understanding that they were running the risk of antibiotic resistance when it would be truly needed.
