Why don't doctors always give antibiotics for bacterial infections?

I had a bacterial infection had the doctor said that it is against CDC regulations to give antibiotics for bacterial infections but sometimes they due to provide relief to the patient.

    Because bacteria quickly develops resistance against antibiotics. To prevent emergence of AB-resistant bacterial strains, doctors are instructed to prescribe only in most severe cases.
