Get Pneumonia Treatment Online

Pneumonia is an infection in the lungs. Your lungs are lined with tiny air sacs called alveoli, which carry oxygen to the bloodstream. When pneumonia infects these sacs, they become irritated and inflamed and your body fights the infection by filling the lungs with phlegm. Unfortunately this makes it hard for oxygen to reach the bloodstream and can cause a severe, painful cough.


With our same day pneumonia treatment service, you can meet with a top online doctor, get diagnosed and receive the treatment you need. Our doctors can determine whether you have pneumonia or something else altogether and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan.

Treatment Options

Treating Pneumonia

Treatment for pneumonia will depend on the type of pneumonia you’re diagnosed with. There are four different types of pneumonia:

  • Bacterial PneumoniaAntibiotics are typically used to treat this form of pneumonia. Bacterial pneumonia is a more common form of the illness, but it can still be dangerous. 
  • Viral pneumonia—Typically respiratory viruses are the cause. Viral pneumonia is especially common in children and older people. This type of pneumonia is rarely serious and typically goes away faster than bacterial pneumonia.
  • Mycoplasma pneumonia—Mycoplasma pneumonia is also called walking pneumonia because it usually presents a milder case, typically affecting older children and young adults. 
  • Fungal pneumonia—fungal pneumonia occurs when fungus (typically from bird droppings or soil) is inhaled. It is less common and usually affects those who work around fungus, and those who have chronic diseases or weakened immune systems.
