Be more specific: To get the most from the site you need to provide detailed background information & ask a question related to those specifics. You did not specify what bacteria or what type of infection.You give no clue on how it was confirmed & if or how it was treated. Without specifics, no reasoned answer can be provided. You are welcome to start over.This is not a chat room.Questions are not linked.
