What is Treatment Of Pneumonia

That depends on the type of infection and how sick your baby is. For bacterial pneumonia, doctors prescribe antibiotics. Viral pneumonia doesn't respond to antibiotics, so treatment may be limited to rest and fluids. In fact, getting enough fluids is vital, to fight the dehydration from rapid breathing and fever that's often a side effect of pneumonia.
