stay away from sugars, starches, antibiotics and (at least in my case) prednisone and inhaled steroids.
See your regular doctor or your gyn to be properly tested for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally before treating. chronic vaginitis can cause issues with the skin, causing tearing and such so make sure that you are properly treating what is going on.
i had constant post nasal drip for years and recurring sinus infections. Allergy tests showed only a slight reaction to pollen. Allergy specialist wanted me to do allergy shots for pollen but I didn't hink that was the problem (Used to get bad hayfevert but that's gone and this is different). Had prednisone injects a could of times which helped - indicating it was some allergic rection. Eventually determined thought experimentation that is was an allergy to wheat/gluten and SOY.
with ms, but I have had the same exact question. I was wondering if I had continuous yeast infections and if it had something to do ms. I had recently gone for my annual Pap and all tests were clear for infection..... so what has been causing the "itch". My doc. said that in the beginning (5 months ago) it could have been yeast and I treated it, but to me it kept coming back, or so I thought, she said I must have treated it with the OTC inserts and it went away. But to this day...
The infections in both ears keep jumping from fungal to bacterial, and back, and the dr's are confused. Meanwhile, I sit in pain with poor sleep quality and it's taking its tole on me. I have been putting cotton in my ears while I shower, and using q-tips afterwards just in case, but nothing seems to help.
Three other causes of inflammatory lung disease are bacterial infections, viral infections, and parasitic lung disease. Other less common causes of lung disease (due to her young age) are fungal infections, feline leukemia, feline aids and lung cancer. Please know that holistic remedies can be very effective but usually take longer than traditional therapies.
it took them what seemed like forever to find out he developed a severe heart problem after a dental visit!! Teeth infections can lead to bloodstream infections and secondary heart problems (infections) I would think the bloodwork would show it all but, I remember the doctors were baffeled with him until he mentioned his dental visit...
Back in the year 2000 I was treated for a fungal infection in my lung and was diagnosed with ABPA and some Bronchiectasis. Over the past 8 years, I’ve been pretty much infection free with maybe one respiratory infection per year. I haven’t lost a day of work due to being sick up until last November. My Pulminologist has been treating the infections with antibiotics every time a different antibiotic.
It most certainly cannot regrow hair if you have thyroid and adrenal malfunctions. I used prednisone and inhaled steroids and for COPD, It not only resulted in hair loss, but CAUSED me to have an adrenal problem. I got off that junk and now rely on natural anti-inflammatories.
If you were truly hypo (and you would have had to have blood tests for that), rather than just some similar to the oxycodene side effects (see wikipedia), and you had thyroid medication and the Prednisone, then there is a good chance your hair will come back, after your hypo levels stabilised. I think what has happened in your case, is that your pain relief medication, Oxycodone has had some issues in side effects very similar to being hypo.
The problem seems to be, while our bodies our busy, fighting this virus, it is easier for us to get bacterial and fungal infections, unfortunately. There are many different types of antibiotics, and super strong ones used, for medically resistant infections. It is always a good idea, while on this Treatment, to take care of infections as soon as possible, so they dont snow-ball, and become serious, which may jeopardize our Treatment. I think you should go in to the E.R.
In the past few months I have run fevers and have been on levequin and prednisone. I guess surgery is nest the dr feels that is the only option left for me now. Any suggestions or input appreciated.
He has always been very healthy -- engaging in extreme sports -- hikes mountains, runs, swims, body builder, etc. He has a susceptibility to fungal infections and one month prior to this adrenal crisis, his primary care had put him on a rather high dosage of oral Nystatin, which initially brought on his symptoms (extreme fatigue, dizziness, craving salt and sugar, loss of appetite). In the hospital, a kidney specialist wrote in my son's chart that the "Nystatin is the likely culprit.
It's now safe to assume my immune system had before been compromised with Lyme and co-infections. And, since this encounter my core temperatue has always run low, and my hands and feet are always very cold. My skin became so sensitive that I could break up and bleed by a light scrape on a cardboard box. Sleeping on a mattress, I woke up mornings covered in the mattress markings.
Tea tree oil on the feet after washing with antiseptics to prevent fungal infections. The azole prescription meds are what put me into adrenal insufficiency and they are not an option for those with Addison's. Tea tree oil shampoos also help with the dandruff, also a fungal infection. Andrew Lessman supplements, available at www.hsn.com, the home shopping network on TV, are the best. Lessman, a biochemist and former FDA lawyer, does his research and provides the real product needed.

There are some people who develop fungal sinus infections due to taking prednisone. However, this is not common. I would suggest directly approaching the sinus situation as the first priority.
If the mucus colored and if so what color? Ocasionally fungal infections are the cause of the problem. At this point you have what is called a "chronic" problem which has been ignored by your health care provider. In an asthmatic attack the body has an immune system that responds dramatically to the presence of a "non-self substance", commonly called an antigen.
This condition also interferes with the protective mechanisms of the eye and mouth. Eye inflammation and ulcers of the cornea, as well as fungal infections of the mouth (thrush), occur with increased frequency in those with Sjogren's. Rarely, a person with this disorder develops a malignancy (cancer) affecting the lymphocytes (lymphoma). Today, Sjogren’s syndrome is itself accorded the status of a distinct connective tissue disorder. Sjogren's Syndrome also occurs in some people with lupus.
The most likely triggers for acute urticaria are allergies to pets, horses, latex and foods, such as shellfish and nuts, bee or wasp stings, allergies to medicines, Viral infections, such as glandular fever and herpes, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. The cause of chronic urticaria is often more difficult to identify.
I am a diabetic and have been running very high blood sugars when I have been on the many antibiotics and Prednisone. I am now experiencing some neuropathy in my hands and feet - do not know if it is related to my mysterious condition or a result of the long periods of high blood sugar. Would appreciate any input. Thanks !!!!
He has been on numerous antibiotics with steroids beginning October 2008; about 8 courses of antibiotics and medrol dose packs/prednisone. In order, he took Amoxicillan, z-pack, Bactrim, ceftin, cefadroxil, and now Augmentin. He does not tolerate leavquin or other abx in that class. He has seen an ENT & CT scan showed nothing too significant (maybe some swelling- couldn't discern if inflammation or infection).
first, advair has been known to cause fungal infections and sinus infections. I remember reading something about fungus actually causing the sinus conditions. There was a diet recommended. Something like the candida diet with no dairy, wheat, yeast, or fermented things like vinegar and beer. Maybe you could find something about it on the internet.
At the same time, I was also diagnoses with sarcoidosis (which was also causing inflammation in my joints), which the rheumatologist decided to treat with prednisone. I started on 30 mg of prednisone and the next day I saw the breast specialist, who felt that the prednisone i was already prescribed would clear up the GM as well. He admittedly had never seen this before but strongly felt this is all I would need.
Hello, From the symptoms that both of you are having the same symptoms and itching, contagious diseases like scabies and fungal infections need to be ruled out. Until and unless it is confirmed that it is a fungal infection, you should not use topical and oral antifungals. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get KOH examination of the skin scrapings done.
My older child has had frequent and very persistent sinus infections, and they routinely give prednisone and nasal steroid sprays in addition to antibiotics. They still can go on for months. From anecdotal evidence on the web, I would not entirely rule out chronic sinus infection as either a driver or exacerbator of your anxiety. Who are you seeing for the sinus infection? I'd suggest at this point you need an ENT specializing in sinus.
Many times we breathe in tiny particles in stores, schools, work, etc... which lodge in our sinus' but are fungal in nature, and cannot be cured with antibiotics. Antibiotics actually make fungi grow, also create it. Hope this helped. I have no idea what is going on with our atmosphere or with everyones health, but we have to build our systems up as naturally as we can to fight it all.
The most likely triggers for acute urticaria are allergies to pets, horses, latex and foods, such as shellfish and nuts,bee or wasp stings,allergies to medicines,Viral infections, such as glandular fever and herpes, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. In your case the bee sting can be responsible for these hives. The mainstay of treatment of hives is antihistamine which may be necessary for prolonged periods (in excess of 6 weeks).
Went to the DR and they gave me prednisone and it didn't seem to help. I am terribly worried that I will have to go another 4 months with this awful condition. I am traveling up to MAYO clinic in Minnesota next week for testing, but if anyone on here has any idea of what is going on it would be great! thank you. could the alcohol (last year) and marijuana (this year) have caused some flare up?..i really have no idea. any help would be great.
