Preferred are macrolides or fluoroquinolones(Azithromycin), and tetracyclines and rifampin are also effective. Aminoglycosides and penicillin and cephalosporin antibiotics are not effective against this disease.
The initial treatment should be administered intravenously. The clinical treatment response usually occurs within 3 to 5 days, followed by oral sequential therapy. For patients with normal immunity, the entire course of treatment is 10 to 14 days, and for immunodeficiency and advanced cases should be extended to 3 weeks.
Antibiotics can also be selected based on drug susceptibility testing。
don't worry , it  can be treated.
