Recovering from bilateral pneumonia, have flu and contracted eneterobacter clochae. Why didn't amoxicillin or penicillin shot fix this?

Hi!! I have had the Flu still recovering from bi lateral pneumonia and just recently contracted enterobacter-clochae whatbis that and why didn t the penicillin shot help or the amoxicillin . It is steady growing the back of my throat.. I m now on Bactrim so indeed help figuring out how I got this and what this infection is and I read there was a high mortality rate and it grows heavy. How do I live with this until it heals...toothbrush wise and pain wise and I hope my dr has the right drug because they thought it was strep throat by looking at it. tgay777 @ WWW.WWWW.WW

hi mr
iam dr N....
pneumonia is a disease/conditon of lungs caused by many like viral,bacterial,aspiration,fungal etc
the infective organisms are different in their groups and different variants in each group ..each will have different modes of transmission,severity,morbidity,symptoms and treatment..
due to unnecessary,incomplete and improper usage of antibiotics these organisms develop resistance to the drugs and might be of same efficacy as ut was previously
usually these diseases may be acquired transmission from others by inhalational route ...
do not worry as you are recovering for the problem
take the treatment properly and completey as the drs advice and
get well soon
