    I went to see my GP today about something else and she heard me coughing and asked to listen to my chest. Anyway she asked me a few things and said I have a chest infection. I told her I started feeling better today anyway but she gave me anti biotics and I don't know if there is any point taking them. My cough is holding on but that's it really. I haven't got a temperature anymore and I'm not coughing up as much stuff as I was and all that so should I just leave it cos I don't wanna get resistant to antibiotics or some **** lol

    oh yeah and as homeland says you are more likely to develop resistance if you take a couple and then don't take them x

    If I've learnt anything in GCSE Biology B1, it's that you must always finish a course of antibiotics, otherwise the remaining few pathogens in your body will reproduce resulting in you contracting the infection again.
