Treatment of pleurisy and pleuritic pain

The most important step in the management of pleurisy is to detect and manage the underlying cause. The breathing problem can be treated by removing fluid from the pleural space, and this procedure is termed as ‘thoracocentesis’. Bacterial chest infections require a vigorous course of antibiotics for management. Sometimes, pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed to provide symptomatic relief.
