If it is an infection, then strong antibiotics should be sufficient. Which ones are you taking?

Has your condition improved over the last days? Is it stable?

Waiting for your reply.

Which antibiotics are you currently taking? The infection which you have mentioned is a little difficult to treat as it is an uncommon one.

If your condition is stable then maybe you should do an antibiogram in order to determine which antibiotic would be the most useful in treatment of the above named infection.

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is usually sensitive to co-trimoxazole, ticarcillin, however your doctor should know better which drug you should take.

Dear Uvaa,

It is very good to hear that you are getting better. However, your doctor is the one who should take credit.)))

Wish you all the best.
