Prevent infection : Prophylactic antibiotics may be used two to three times per week during respiratory season in particular. A review of your culture results and symptoms by Healthtap may be reviewed during a virtual consultation. Other measures such as immune globulin may be discussed with your physician and an immunologist. Add anti tetanus and pneumococcal antibody titers.
