Thanks for writing in.
Some types of interstitial pneumonia
( a condition in which the spaces between the alveoli are affected) would typically cause such a picture. These are caused by organisms like Mycoplasma pneumoniae
, Chlamydia, viruses, rickettsiae and some other organisms. These are usually treated with antibiotics like tetracyclines which are effective against these organisms.
This is a problem that you need not worry about. You should be good in 2-3 days provided the right treatment is started.
Hope this helps.
