How is brucellosis treated?
The treatment for brucellosis is antibiotics. This treatment can last 6 to 8 weeks, or even longer. Two or more antibiotics are typically used. This helps lower the risk of drug resistance and reoccurrence of the disease.
Those infected patients who are pregnant, have a limited immune system, or are allergic to the antibiotics will need to speak with a doctor further to discuss options.
What are the complications associated with brucellosis?
Complications associated with brucellosis include chronic infections causing relapsing fevers and occasionally infective endocarditis, bone infection or meningitis.
