The antibiotic may be associated with diarrhea. A probiotic is usually helpful and may be administered during the course. If the bleeding is moderate, then please see the Emergency room. Watch for shortness of breath, sudden changes and if these occur seek medical attention. COVID-19 infection may result in a prolonged course. The course of antibiotics should be completed. Please follow up.
