@rguribe Thank you for explaining what happened. What a nightmare you went through! It’s a good lesson for all of us to get medical care quickly, things could have been much worse.

It’s a cautionary lesson too. I am sure many of us may have skipped washing our hands at some point when we should have. Those of us who are post-transplant so on immunosuppressants need to be especially careful. It’s very surprising that it could have even been inhaled.

I would agree, and find your experience alarming. I am relieved you sought treatment so promptly. It is an important reminder of the need for vigilance with hand washing etc. Thankyou for sharing, it’s a timely reminder
