ABSTRACT:
This review highlights the increased prevalence of antibiotic use for respiratory tract infections, since nowadays respiratory tract infections (RTIs) especially in children have been found to be one of the most frequent reasons for parents to consult the healthcare professionals. The etiological cause of such infections in children has seen to be viral but unnecessary use of antibiotics in such cases has lead to irrational prescribing pattern of antibiotics and such inappropriate use of antibiotic in both quantity and drug choice has greatly influenced the development of antibiotic resistance in children. Thereby, treating respiratory tract infection in children with proper medication guidelines has been mandatory for the physicians.
