What can treat fungal infections?

Posted by smokey @smokey1, Sep 7, 2014

Information on fungal infections please. Too many antibiotics and a few times using a steroid inhaler caused a fungal infection identified through a blood test and KOH culture. Also had severe skin fungal infection. This was treated with fluconazole and turbinafine. Also Nystatin for the mouth thrush. The roof of my mouth is still white, I’ve heard of “embedded” or hard plaque thrush online. What is this? My WBC count is going lower (3.6 from a normal 7.0). I’ve been using essential oils (Rosemary.lemongrass). What should I be doing now? Is it safe for me to get a flu shot? Pnuemonia shot? I’ve been told it is Chronic mucotaneous Candidasis.
