Pneumonia is infection of the lung tissue.

It may be due to bacterial infection.

So it needed a course of antibiotics.

Do a Sputum culture and sensitivity and based on the report choose the suitable antibiotic for complete cure.

follow it with a repeat X ray after the course of antibiotic to see the improvement.
