You doctor will have prescribed the doxycycline to make sure the infection doesn't return.
Pulmonary nocardiosis is an infection of the lung with the bacteria Nocardia asteroides.
*The goal of treatment is to control the infection. Antibiotics are used, but the response to treatment may be slow and you must keep taking the medications for at least 3 months. Patients who have medication allergies will need to take other antibiotics.
*Surgery may be needed to remove or drain infected areas.
The outcome is usually good with quick diagnosis and treatment. The outcome is poor when the infection spreads and treatment is delayed.
Some patients with an impaired immune system may need to take antibiotics for long periods of time to prevent the infection from returning.
