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.
