Abstract

Antibiotics are chemical compounds with bactericidal properties, synthesized from microbiological sources. Ancient Egyptians used plant extracts and honey as antimicrobial agents for wound healing, with limited therapeutic impact at low concentrations. History of antibiotics are very old. Now days people use antibiotics to a large extent. The review study was conducted using a series of questions in an online application and was disseminated throughout North 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India, through electronic social media platforms like Facebook, Gmail, and WhatsApp, among others, during the period of. Digital questionnaires were used to collect data on antibiotic intake and participant reactions to antibiotic usage, encouraging participation. This review explores the impact, knowledge, side effects, resistance, and usage of antibiotics in local populations, aiding in understanding current scenarios and future plans for antibiotic research.
