If a person has...

If a person has the bacteria pseudomonas in his system, should he see an infectious disease doctor or what kind of doctor?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

My husband had a urinary infection and went to the hospital for four days. He received antibiotics both intraveniously and by mouth for some time. He is not taking any antibiotics at this time.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you noticed any recent swelling? Do you have any tooth pain?

No.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He has a productive cough which seems to be starting to become heavier.

If his infection'll persist then a referral to infectious disease doctor can be advised.

He should do saline gargles and steam inhalation.

Also do oral betadine rinse.

He should try nasal saline spray and OTC Robitussin DM.

Hydrate himself with plenty of fluids.

Take vitamin C lozenges.

Also elevate his head while sleeping.

Use a humidifier in his room.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
