Avatar n tn I also used apple Cider Vinegar as an anti-fung<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l wash. By the time October came, I was symptom-free in my foot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd my groin, so I put it all down to a fungal infection of some kind. October was great, I was back to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan>rmal. Then an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan>vember came, and the leg/foot pain came back with a vengeance. I had slacked off on using the Clotrimazole because of the lack of symptoms, although I was still wiping my skin with the apple Cider Vinegar.

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...
12332996 tn?1424804597 I had my adrenals surgically removed to resolve the Cushing's disease as it was killing me and the aI was more manageable.

Avatar m tn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ifan> 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), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd you had thyroid medication <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd 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.
2030686 tn?1351692148 The problem seems to be, while our bodies our busy, fighting this virus, it is easier for us to get bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd fung<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l infections, unfortunately. There are many dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ifan>ferent types of antibiotics, and super strong ones used, for medically resistant infections.

I think you should go in to the E.R.

Avatar n tn There are some people who develop fungal sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>s due to taking prednisone. However, this is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan>t common. I would suggest directly approaching the sinus situation as the first priority.

I remember reading something about fungus actually causing the sinus conditions. There was a diet recommended. Something like the candida diet with an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan> dairy, wheat, yeast, or fermented things like vinegar and beer. Maybe you could find something about it on the internet.
Avatar f tn at the same time, I was also diagan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan>ses 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd 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.

Until and unless it is confirmed that it is a fungal infection, you should an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan>t use topical and oral antan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ifan>ungals. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get KOH examination of the skin scrapings done.
Avatar f tn I had it for the first time last year during summer. Dermatologist said it is due to heat. did the antibacterial soap <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd fung<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l cream <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd other things <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd was gone within 2 weeks. This year I got it again in summer thought it was the same but it took more than a month to go away with the same medicine (soap and creme). I just got it again this week after I had a small surgery for which I had to take antibiotics to avoid infections.
Avatar m tn My older child has had frequent and very persistent sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>s, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd they routinely give prednisone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd nasal steroid sprays in addition to antibiotics. They still can go on for months. From anecdotal evidence on the web, I would an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noan>t 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.
