A deadly, drug-resistant yeast infection is spreading around the world

The new strain of infection-causing yeast is known as Candida auris, and unlike its cousin Candida albicans, this version has developed a complete resistance to the antifungal medications used to combat it.

http://www.medicaldaily.com/yeast-infect...ant-391035

“What concerned us is that it is potentially resistant to one or two, if not all three” main classes of antifungal drugs used to treat these infections, said Tom Chiller, the CDC’s top fungus expert, in an interview Tuesday.

Invasive infections with any type of Candida can be fatal. Based on information from a limited number of patients, 60 percent of people with this new type of Candida infection have died, but it’s not clear how many of them had other serious illnesses that also increased their risk of death.

From washingtonpost.com link:
Quote:Unlike other types of yeast that typically spread from person to person, “this one seems to get into hospital settings and stay there,” Chiller said, and may spread from contact with the environment, such as contaminated surfaces or equipment.

The organism was first identified in 2009 in Japan from a patient’s external ear discharge.


Great... to get it, you have to be unfortunate to have been in in hospital for some kind of treatment in the first place. 13.gif
Here they try to do surgery in the winter only as a rule, less emergencies of course, as it tends to cut down on infections.

Oh I don't think that was enough fear mongering. Candida albicans is way more dangerous than they suggest.

It seems all candida (fungus) live in the large colon and once established, a change of diet really won't be an immediate cure. So, if this is the case, then any treatments need to be targeted at cleansing the colon, then of course, a diet change to maintain health.

Not sure about the colon cleansing. I think an initial aggressive treatment of anti-fungal substances and then a lifetime of gut friendly anti-candida diet. The majority of people have candida yeast, it's just the overgrowth you need to avoid.

Yup. Started an anti candida diet (low carb- high fat, sugar and grain free) in Feb and have never felt better. Weight is dropping, blood pressure has dropped, depression is gone, energy levels are up, etc. Except for having poison ivy everywhere except my face I feel great!

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

My sis is recovering from poison ivy, it is nasty, in that, she kept spreading it because it is basically an oily residue which needs to be cleaned off properly.

It does suck. It sucks very much.

In my case I didn't have to worry about spreading it. I woke up with it all over me. I think it was on a towel I dried off with after a shower so the initial application was everywhere.

Kids put a basket of laundry on the couch. A towel fell out. I grabbed the towel when I went to shower. I think one of the dogs had gotten on the couch and laid on the towel. That's the only place I could have gotten it.

My sis was clearing her land of brush and she covered herself in it and kept spreading it after she washed off. She got special cream from her doc, so no complaints now.

I went to the ER before work yesterday morning. They put me on Prednisone. I also got some tecnu on advice from the pharmacist. I have only used it once so far but it seems to be doing a great job.

Just for future reference - about Tecnu (wikipedia)

Quote:The cleanser was invented by former Mead Johnson executive and chemist Dr. Robert Smith during the early 1960s. Tecnu, for "Technically New," was intended to remove radioactive fallout dust from skin.[2][3] Several years later, his wife discovered another use for the cleanser. After an exposure to poison oak, she washed with Tecnu and did not get urushiol-induced contact dermatitis.

If you know you have been in contact with urushiol you will be ok as long as you wash thoroughly with soap and water. The problem is washing it off soon enough and doing a very thorough job.
