There are many chemicals that will kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms. An antibiotic generally refers to a chemical that can be used on or inside a patient (humans, pets, livestock, etc) to inhibit the growth of bacteria (bacteriostatic) or kill bacteria (bactericidal).

Whenever there is infection in our body, our immune system get activated and WBC (white blood cells) which are soldiers in our body start fighting against the bacteria.

But when there are powerful bacteria in our body, our WBC's are incapable of fighting with them and can't destroy them.

At that time antibiotics are important and they stop the growth of bacteria. At present with the help of antibiotics millions of people survive.

Hai inhibit means prevent the growth of bacteria antibiotics are not used to stimulate WBC because whenever a foreign substance automatically our immune system send information to bone marrow to release more WBC & neutrophils reaches to infected area & stimulate immune reaction but sometimes there is a need for antibiotics to kill that foreign agent.
