For a lot of common illness there is no specific cure and they will resolve with time and simple remedies available without prescription. Your community pharmacist is available to advise you. Ordinary coughs and colds, sore throats and stomach upsets fall into this category. Viruses, which do not respond to treatment with antibiotics, generally cause them. Please therefore don’t expect your doctor to prescribe a drug for every problem. Discussion and advice may be far more useful and free from side effects. We feel it is important that all families should keep a reasonably stocked medical cabinet at home to deal with minor ailments.
