Is there a cure for secondary bacterial infections?

Secondary bacterial infections are caused by invading bacteria that enter the body that is already ill with an infection; these bacteria can be treated and destroyed with the right antibiotics. The medicine will enter the bloodstream and find the microbe. Once the bacterium is found, the drug will either destroy it or prevent it from replicating. The body's own immune system will then be able to clean up the rest of the offending organisms. An individual should be completely rid of the bacterial infection once the prescription has been used in its entirety.
