This is a continuation of the old question about pneumonia

Customer Question

This is a continuation of the old question about pneumonia where I am having difficulty getting up any clem. I just discovered that after a very hot shower my body temperature is 102 and I"m concerned as to what this might mean. Right now I'm on day 3 of my Z pack (to be taken at 6 tonight) Could I have to be hospitalized with this?

I did a quick risk score based on your information and it seems that it is safe to be treated as an outpatient, and since it is day 3 now, I would change antiobiotics and possible repeat imaging or obtain more comprehensive imaging.
