I have a general question about the wide-spread use of antibiotics. I
am cell biologist, but I realize the problems that the over-use of
antibiotics has caused, namely the development of resistant strains of
bacteria. I was wondering what the experts (meaning microbiologists
and not MD's) thought about the use of "topical antibiotics". Recently
I've seen many consumer products advertising the use antibiotics- hand
soap, dish soap, mouth wash, band-aids, etc. Are we (consumers) asking
for trouble by extensively using these products or am I being paranoid?
