My two weeks old baby has neonatal sepsis and I wish to know how long it takes before it clears after giving him antibiotics.
Sepsis is treated with antibiotics given into the vein for some days or in severe ones for 3 weeks..

Sepsis can be caused by any organism - bacteria, virus, parasites etc. Blood test usually shows high white cell count. The baby must be treated in a hospital. Prevention centres around good hygiene. The importance of hand washing cannot be over emphasized. Malaria prevention and control is key. Washing babies utensil separate from other utensils is a must. Proper hygiene while making food should be an uncompromising standard. Source of water for babies food must be clean, odorless, colorless and tasteless.
