Before all you moms start denying your children antibiotics, the antibiotic use in this situation was excessive. One or two prescriptions wasn’t enough to make a huge difference. And who knew the average one-year-old has already had two antibiotic scripts? The allergy risk kicked in around five antibiotic scripts, and was worse during the second half of the first year, when foods are first being introduced.
So we can all breathe a sigh of relief and keeping up the constant amoxicillin flow. But it does beg the question: what about cumulative antibiotic use? Over a childhood, at what point do multiple doses of generalized antibiotic wreak such havoc in the undeveloped intestine that allergic response becomes likely?
