antibiotic is mainly refered to some kind of molecule or substance and more often a drug which effectively inhibits the growth of a microbe that tries to grow inside our body or some animals body and it is generally administered from outside whereas antibody is a self synthesized molecule by the body which is very specific against a foreign substance when it enters the body and it is a part of our own immune system.
An antibiotic is a drug that kills or prevents the growth of bacteria. They have no effect against viruses or fungal infections.
An antibody or immunoglobulin is a large Y-shaped protein used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects like bacteria and viruses.
Please see the web pages for more details on Antibiotics and Antibody.
antibodies are inside ur body whih fight against the germs to keep us healthy....... weras antibiotic is an external supply (medicine) to strenthen ur body against any viral germs
An Antibiotic is a drug used to fight off an infection, and antibody is a protein compound your body manufactures in response to a foreign object in your body, this can be tissue related or a virus. Is we produce antibodies to cold and flu viruses, where as we take an antibiotic to fight bacterial infections. Antibiotics do not work against viruses and we do not produce antibodies to bacteria. Antibiotics usually work by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria disabling their ability to reproduce, viruses are less complex and do not have a true cell wall so we produce an antibody against their DNA, and eventually stop them from reproducing as well.
To make if simple, antibodies are what your body produces to combat an infection whether bacterial or viral while an antibiotic is a substance taken in either through IV, orally, topically, etc. that is used to fight an infection.
I know an antibody is something your bodies produces itself to fight off viruses
Read the other answers for antibiotic, seems I was wrong for that one
Antibodies travel round your body and produce antigens to kill a cold or whatever is wrong with you.
and an antibiotic is like a boost for your antigens.. it means that your antigens might not have the right "code" to kill the cold so the antibiotic just helps it make more
hope i helped
A type of protein made by plasma cells (a type of white blood cell) in response to an antigen (foreign substance). Each antibody can bind to only one specific antigen. The purpose of this binding is to help destroy the antigen. Antibodies can work in several ways, depending on the nature of the antigen. Some antibodies destroy antigens directly. Others make it easier for white blood cells to destroy the antigen. Antibiotic is a chemical substance produced by microorganism which has the capacity to inhibit the growth of or kill other microorganisms, used to treat infectious diseases.
Molecules in the blood or secretory fluids that tag, destroy, or neutralize bacteria, viruses, or other harmful toxins (see Antigens). They are members of a class of proteins known as immunoglobulins, which are produced and secreted by B lymphocytes in response to stimulation by antigens. An antibody is specific to an antigen. below are some anitbodies.

Medicines created using microbes or fungi that are weakened and taken into the body to destroy harmful bacteria.
Drugs used to treat infection.Drugs that fight infection caused by bacteria. Antibiotic drugs include amikacin, amoxicillin (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid), ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, clarithromycin, imipenem, metronidazole, novobiocin, penicillin, tetracycline, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole
