Cold and flu season is no fun — there are no two ways about it. So naturally, if you get sick, you'll do pretty much anything to feel better.
But are antibiotics the answer when it comes to the flu and other respiratory viruses?
Nope, "The Doctors" host Dr. Travis Stork says.
"Remember, antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections, and viruses are not bacteria," he tells us. "If you come into the ER with a respiratory virus, my first thought is, 'How do I make you feel better?' You're mainly treating the symptoms. There are antivirals, but it's not this perfect cure-all."
