OK…It’s time for a biology lesson. The bugs that cause your infection can be divided into 3 groups: the weaklings, the normals and the superbugs. When you first start taking an antibiotic, the weaklings are the first ones to be killed off. As you continue taking the medication, it builds up to higher levels in your body and the normals begin dying off. Keep taking it and all the normals are finally wiped out and only the strongest, most-resistant critters are left.
