Group B Strep Infection (cont.)
Self-Care at Home
Diagnosis and management of group B strep infections cannot
be done at home. Serious group B strep infections require intravenous
antibiotics. If prolonged treatment is needed and the patient is stable,
intravenous antibiotics may be administered at home if this can be arranged
safely. Milder infections like urinary tract infections (bladder infections) may
be treated with oral antibiotics.
