This was told to us by our Dr. after my DH got sick yet again -this time with a bronchial infection-after the initial cold 3 weeks ago! He said if you didn't change your toothbrush, you probably reinfected yourself with the germs on it. So, even if you are on antibiotics, change your brush before and then after they are done. It is better to be safe than sorry-a toothbrush costs alot less than the Dr.'s visit and the medicine!
