*ANECDOTAL* notes about : I'm feeling better today, and I haven't really had any chest infection symptoms.

Could be related to the fact that I was already taking doxycycline 100mg qd for an acne outbreak just before this hit. It may have prevented secondary infection.


Related notes:

(1) Yes, I know that this is not advisable and can cause antibiotic resistance. I do courses of antibiotics for acne only in severe outbreaks.

(2) I have not been able to be tested for so I cannot confirm whether I actually have it; doctor only presumes.

(3) I don't know whether the pneumonia symptoms that patients have are because of viral effects or because of secondary infections.

(4) Again, this is all anecdotal, take everything with a grain of salt.
