hi, this is throat swab culture and sensitivity report which says that your child has infection in the throat. bacteria causing it is pseudomonas and bacteria is sensitive for following antibiotics. so to reduce the infection you have to give the antibiotics for which the bacteria is sensitive.all the antibiotics for which the bacteria is sensitive is in form of injections. so you may have to give intravenous antibiotics only.
