Fred - Good point on psychotherapy and hard work, but antibiotics only kill dividing bacteria, not those who are not dividing. The non-dividing bacteria are kept in check by the body's immune system. A clinically important bacterial infection occurs when the rate of bacterial dividing is faster than the body's immune system can remove it. Hence, the bacteria will not disappear and may grow back after the antibiotic is withdrawn, if enough bacteria remains in a non-dividing state during antibiotic treatment. I know it is splitting hairs, but is a fact. - Cam
