Nosocomial pneumonia, male (age 60), fever 103 for 3days. Antibiotic started 2days ago (augmentin, azithro). When will temp. normalize? Is it serious?
It can take a while: The condition sound serious. Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections are usually worse than "walking pneumonia" of the community. You'll be on antibiotics for 7-10 day (avg), & barring relapse, you start to feel better around that time. The fevers can persist until then, but usually dissipate in 2-3 days. If fevers persist, talk to your doc about changing antibiotics. Any lung infection is serious. ...Read more

Depends: Continued fever with pneumonia while already on oral antibiotics can be of concern. It may be indicative of a pleural effusion (fluid in the lining of the lung). It can also just mean you need to give the antibiotics more time to work. I suggest discussing this with your doctor and getting a chest x-ray. ...Read more
