Does Milk Thistle help after liver transplant?

What anti-fungal did you use to get rid of the fungus? I tried Lamisil 3 times that didn't work which I think you may have been referring to in your first post.
Some fungus hates oxygen so I was wondering if the fungus might be susceptible to Hyperbaric chamber therapy. Probably not or I would think the doctor would have mentioned it but considering the cost maybe not.
Congrats on getting rid of it.
Take care,
Jake

Hi, Jake.
Sorry for the delayed response but I am not on Connect much these days. I am attaching a picture of what the doctor gave me as a prescription. It cost $50 from him but there are products in the drug stores that have the same main ingredient that I suspect are just as good. That ingredient is Tolnaftate 1%.

It takes a long time when using a topical. I believe the oral medications work more quickly but they can interfere with your kidneys. My transplant center let me try it for few days but it was a problem so I had to stop.

Good luck, I hope it doesn't take too long.
