... chest infections this is the 3rd time. Am on day 6 of these meds and still in alot of pain. Should they have helped by now. Many thanks
It certainly seems as if they should have helped by now. It's possible that you have caught an antibiotic resistant strain of bacteria since you keep getting infected over and over despite receiving antibiotics. Check with your Dr. to see if a sensitivity test was run with the culture. That test will tell what antibiotics your infectious bacteria are sensitive to... meaning what antibiotics will kill it. This test is done in the Microbiology dept.
