Dear Anon,

Thank you for writing us today.

It can take time for a (complicated) infection such as this, to fully clear. It sounds like this may be the case. Keep in contact with your doctor about this and ask to be seen if you are not feeling markedly better (or feel worse). If you are not satisfied with your care, seek a second opinion.

You may find the resource below helpful.
