Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria that cause infection are not killed by the antibiotics taken to stop the infection. The bacteria survive and continue to multiply, causing more harm. Widespread use of antibiotics promotes the spread of antibiotic resistance. Smart use of antibiotics is the key to decreasing, or even reversing, the spread of resistance.
