Three days ago my 10 years-old son had a sore throat, after a very short examination the doctor said my son has pharyngitis and that he has to take antibiotics for ten days. He took it for two days and now he no long has any sore throat- Why does he have to take the antibiotic for so long? I don’t want him to take too many medications…

A. In order to prevent the complications that the simple sore throat may have in the future, it’s very important to take the medication the whole 10 days. Even though it seems it’s no longer necessary- it is.
