I am just posting on here to ask for advice about what to do about a bacterial colonisation (at least that's what I think based on symptoms and sputum samples done by my GP.) Over the last 8 weeks I have had 4 courses of antibiotics (Amoxicillin 1 week, Co-amoxiclav 10 days, Doxycycline 4 weeks in total.) All have helped to curb the infection during the course, but the infection has return immediately after (the usual symptoms of thick green mucus, slight chest pain etc.) My question is, what would be the best course of action from here? I had a chest X-Ray the other day but the results will not be sent through to my GP for another week. Possible courses of action which I've thought about are intravenous antibiotics, nebulised antibiotics or just an increased course of oral antibiotics. Has something similar happened to anybody on here, if so, what did you do to combat it?
