Bacterial Pneumonia Self-Care at Home
If a person suspects they have pneumonia based on the signs or symptoms, see a doctor as soon as possible. There is no home treatment for pneumonia. Although cough suppressants, expectorants, or fever-lowering drugs may be helpful, they should not be started without discussing their use with a doctor.
