Hi, my 11 months old son has pulmonary infection induced by enterococcus, group B strep.
He is very young and I am worried about that, how long it’s going to take for him to get well, since it’s a serious condition and could easily spread to other organs?

Group B streptococci are a common cause of infection in neonates and babies. In newborns they could be especially dangerous by causing sepsis, meningitis, or pneumonia. Group B streptococci are could be present in the body, but without any symptoms of disease; it’s said that these people are “colonized.” Infants could get bacteria during pregnancy or birth by mothers who are “colonized” without knowing it. Diseases like meningitis or pneumonia may be life-threatening, so you have to pay him all your attention. Since many antibiotics have decreased effect, then before the choice of appropriate antibiotic is essential for treatment of such a delicate patient.
