I have a PID and I take antibiotics on a regular basis and I’m worried about developing antibiotic resistance. What advice can you give?
Individuals colonized with or exposed to certain bacteria may develop antimicrobial resistance. This will require a change in therapy so that the particular bacteria is eradicated. Where eradication is not possible, there may still be better suppression with an alternative agent and the resistant strain may die out allowing the original agent to be effective
