Fungal infections such as candida

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on November 18, 2008


Nystatin is available as a cream and a powder for external use, and as a tablet and liquid for internal use. It is an intestinal antifungal and is absorbed into the blood to a very small degree. It is therefore useful for intestinal fungal infections like yeast. It has virtually no side effects and can be used with other medication as well as during pregnancy.
Diflucan is a systemic antifungal that enters the bloodstream as well as spinal fluid. It crosses the blood/brain barrier and can be used for deep-seated fungal infections. It  has been reported that some fungi of the Candida species have become resistant to Diflucan. It is not advisable to take it during pregnancy, definitely not while breast-feeding and consult your doctor about using it with statins. It is quite expensive (a reasonably priced source is http://www.medstore .biz/prescriptio ns/diflucan/). People with liver problems should also consult their doctors due to a slight risk of liver toxicity.
Doug Kaufman who wrote a number of books on “The Fungus Link” suggests both the above prescription drugs for initial use with relatively serious fungal infections.
