Further Outpatient Care

Observe patients for a prolonged period because the potential for relapse is significant. Emphasize compliance with prolonged courses of antibiotics to prevent recurrences.



The practice of good oral and dental hygiene may reduce the possibility of developing actinomycosis.

No measure absolutely prevents the disease.

Explain to female patients about the possibility of actinomycosis when intrauterine or intravaginal devices are used.
