How long does group b streptococcal infection last?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Depends: After diagnosis most physicians will treat a newborn with this DX for 2 weeks on IV antibiotics. Recurrent infection after shorter treatment has been seen. Complications may warrant additional time on meds.The kids generally stabilize on treatment within a few days & toward the end of treatment appear quite normal.
