Virus or Bacteria? When does your child need antibiotics?
According to the CDC, antibiotic use is the leading cause of antibiotic resistance. Up to one-third to one-half of antibiotic use in humans is either unnecessary or inappropriate.
Antibiotics do not fight infections caused by viruses such as colds, flu, most sore throats, and bronchitis. Even many sinus and ear infections can improve without antibiotics. Instead, symptom relief might be the best treatment option for these infections.

Better Care From Your Health Provider Team
Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic provides care to our patients in an innovative way. We group our providers into health care teams, our primary care providers work with other health professionals to coordinate your child’s care. The members of your team work together to make sure they’re all on the same page when it comes to your child’s health. This continuity helps eliminate repetitive procedures and gets you the services you need, when you need them. Our approach to your child’s care is patient- and family- centered. You as parents will help us develop goals of care to address your concerns, so the medical care makes sense for you.
Our provider teams are grouped into the Kangaroo Team, who see all newborns for the first 30 days of life, and the Penguin Team and Dolphin Team. Read more about our health care teams.
